‘Afanc’ – f.a.b. The Detonators
Follow ‘Afanc’, a feral but beautiful beast on an adventure to a waters source and an urgent environmental tale, told through contemporary clowning, captivating visuals and startling soundscapes.
This is the story of rubbish. Yes rubbish. And what we do with it….And what it then does to us…..
It’s the story of a girl who faces her fear and makes friends with a monster. But the people of her town won’t listen and capture the monster….only to get their come-uppance.
Based on the ancient Welsh legend of ‘Afanc’ the show explores our relationship with nature and takes a look at our most precious resource – water – and what can happen if we don’t look after it.
International duo Maggi Swallow and Tiago Gambogi (f.a.b. The Detonators) bring you this fun, family-friendly theatre show with plenty of songs, ingenious recycled costumes and big teeth!
An ‘Open Out’ commission by Wales Outdoor Arts Commissioning Consortium and Articulture. Supported by the Arts Council of Wales, Welsh Government and the National Lottery.
