Small World Theatre presents the premiere of ‘Lament’ a brilliant and haunting new short by artist filmmaker Sean Vicary. ‘Lament’ interweaves animation, poetry and music to explore a personal narrative and examine ideas of loss, longing and belonging in the Welsh border landscape.
"I was born in this area and some of my earliest memories involve looking west across the border towards the Welsh hills and constructing an imaginary geography. Now I am able to look back eastwards and examine this childhood landscape from a new perspective and in doing so re-evaluate my place within it."
This exclusive event includes the artist and renowned musicians, Ceri Rhys Matthews, Christine Cooper and Ceri Jones in an innovative performance with live projection and improvised music. At the end of this performance there will be an opportunity to explore the ideas and making of the work in a discussion chaired by cultural activist Osi Rhys Osmond.
This enlightening evening is also supported by the Arts Council of Wales' Night Out scheme and continues in the second half with an intimate acoustic concert that will delight for one night only!
