Gwyn Emberton dance in association with Aberystwyth Arts Centre
24-29th August 2015
Six exceptional performers delve into the dark and turbulent village of Manteg. They give heartbreaking and affecting performances as they collide with the short stories of author and Wales’ ‘best hated man’ (Western Mail), Caradoc Evans’ My People. This award-winning dance theatre production combines a cinematic score with the haunting world of Evans’ most memorable characters.
'Emberton’s narrative impulse is compelling ... My People is a mature work … that deserves to be widely seen' (Jann Parry, Dancetabs).
My People is supported by Aberystwyth Arts Centre, Arts Council of Wales, Coreo Cymru and the Kevin Spacey Foundation.
