Sung in Welsh with English surtitles.

Dawns Ysbrydion / Ghost Dance
It is 50 years since the drowning of a Welsh village to create the Tryweryn reservoir to support the expanding population of Liverpool. Taking inspiration from the Ghost Dances performed by some of the North American First Nations at the end of the nineteenth century, internationally acclaimed performer Eddie Ladd leads an all-female cast in this unrelenting dance for survival. Co-directed by Montreal choreographer Sarah Williams, with live, original electro score by Y Pencadlys.
