Case Studies

Light Ladd & Emberton's award-nominated show was originally created in 2017 with investment from Visit Wales, in a partnership with Cadw, to be shown in the UNESCO world heritage castles of Edward I in north Wales. 

In the production, audiences dance the rebellion of the last Welsh prince of Wales, from 1399 onwards. It has toured three times now, in 2017, 2018 and 2019, including to urban public spaces and other heritage sites, including Abergavenny Castle, the National Eisteddfod in Cardiff Bay and as part of Surf The Wave, the UK Dance Showcase in Bournemouth.
