Event Description

National Theatre Wales with Migrations & Louise Ann Wilson Company
Created by Louise Ann Wilson 
Written by Gillian Clarke

Dogs and sheep in the dance of the slopes,
the mountain deep in animal mind,
hefting the weight, treading the shape of it,
the knowledge, cynefin
in their bones, nerves, blood

A powerful exploration of the annual cycle of sheep-farming, The Gathering / Yr Helfa is the culmination of three years' observation of life at Hafod Y Llan, a working hill farm on Snowdon.  

Join National Theatre Wales for a remarkable journey on foot through installations and performances inspired by this iconic location, its day-to-day workings, its history and its people.

Created and directed by Louise Ann Wilson, this production will feature new poetry by Wales' national poet, Gillian Clarke, with sound, film and movement.

In association with National Trust
Suitable for ages 10+
