Hysterical oracles, historical chronicles, and a question of territory.

A salmon of truth. And a drowning druid!

By Tara Robinson & Steffan Donnelly

Invertigo release their internationally-acclaimed, bilingual production online. Available from 6pm on Friday 22nd May 2020 for 2 weeks.

One tall, skinny Welshman with an agenda of national importance: there’s a truth behind every good story.

Jones and Davis are fighting.

There’s a skeleton in the well.

There’s more to being Welsh than having the accent, isn’t there?

Accompanied by a live soundscape artist creating a river of sounds in front of you, join performer Steffan Donnelly on a watery lyrical thriller as he guides you through Llanfair­pwllgwyngyll­gogery­chwyrn­drobwll­llan­tysilio­gogo­goch and into his world of slippery small-town myth-making.

The award-winning Invertigo Theatre (Y Tŵr, My People), Pontio, and The Conker Group’s Tara Robinson, present My Body Welsh (nominated for 2 Wales Theatre Awards 2018) – a vibrant, part-bilingual piece of contemporary theatre that investigates storytelling's role in constructing national identity. Enjoyed by audiences across Wales, India, and Japan - and now, online!
