Premiere of new work

Combining high-energy, fast-paced contemporary dance, breakdance and parkour, TÂN follows Wales’ journey to reclaim its cultural identity and a story unfolds where the past ignites our future. TÂN explores the political and cultural awakening in Wales over the past century, taking an arson attack in the 1930s in North Wales as its centrepiece. This defining moment in Welsh history is used in TÂN to reflect on Wales’s recent cultural journey, as well as to highlight the struggles to preserve cultural and linguistic identities in other countries. Setting the stage alight with a moveable set, archive footage and an original soundtrack by BAFTA-winner Tom Raybould, this work explores themes of identity, freedom and the power of transformation.
