Raft

image

Five people, each with a different heritage and background, find themselves in a world far away from home, in a land they do not recognise, hearing a language they do not understand.

 

As they realise their own otherness, against a backdrop of questionable politics, a half-hearted curiosity, and sincere compassion, the question about who they are is turned on its head.

 

And might we ask, what if it was you or me who was a refugee?

 

Bringing together five of the company’s extraordinary dancers with a local cast, this powerful work combines searing choreography with a new soundtrack by sound artist Siôn Orgon, exquisite lighting by Aideen Malone (Bristol Old Vic/National Theatre) and surprising design by Becky Davies.

 

RAFT is supported by Arts Council of Wales, University of South Wales, Aberystwyth Arts Centre, UCAN productions and Creu Cymru.
