MUMBAI THEATRE GUIDE

MY BODY WELSH

by Tara Robinson & Steffan Donnelly

co-produced by Invertigo, The Conker Group & Pontio

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 Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrob-wllllantysiliogogogoch and into his world of slippery small-town myth-making.

 

Invertigo Theatre (Y Tŵr, My People), Pontio and The Conker Group’s Tara Robinson, present My Body Welsh - a vibrant, part-bilingual piece of contemporary theatre that investigates the role storytelling plays in constructing national identity.
