gobscure is live theatre artistic associate

a solo theatre show celebrating how the afon wysg / river usk (flowing through south wales), is in our blood, and has saved our life. some rivers have rights, this one has riots (site of britains last insurrection). journey upstream with us from that city of insurrection (cas newydd / newport); visit where we wrote our first poem in childhood (wales now has the right to play enshrined in law); our first punk gig (as audience member defying sick-chiatry); defynnog yew tree that defies science (the oldest heartwood has rotted so it cannot be accurately carbon-dated); red kites almost wiped out in the 1970’s clung on here, to successfully rewild all over; how welsh poppies taught us post-traumatic growth is possible; and out onto mountain at river’s source that first literally widened our horizons.

performances on the 25 28 may and 1 & 4 june are solo theatre shows.

performance on thursday 30 may includes live music with Late Girl
