croesi traeth / crossing a beach (R&D)
Sleep came and locked my eyes
And then I dreamed a marvellous world
A dance theatre performance on Harlech beach.
Margaret Morris was a dancer and she came to Harlech in 1919 to hold a summer school. Others join her in the beach-dream, amongst them film director Roman Polanski, who shot Macbeth on Black Rock sands; Meibion Glyndŵr’s incendiaries; the archangel Michael and other flying objects; and Ellis Wynne, the sleeping poet himself.
From the sands, you will see a new world, with the help of headphones and…a spying glass.
