Raft, the new dance theatre production from critically acclaimed Welsh choreographer Gwyn Emberton.
Five people, each with a different heritage and background, find themselves in a world far away from home, in a land they do not recognise, hearing a language they do not understand.
As they realise their own otherness, against a backdrop of spite and hateful politics,the question about who they are is turned on its head.
Might we ask, what if it was you or me who was a refugee?
Bringing together five of the company’s extraordinary dancers with a local cast, this powerful work combines searing choreography with a new soundtrack by sound artist Siôn Orgon, exquisite lighting by Aideen Malone (Bristol Old Vic/National Theatre) and design by Becky Davies.
Friday 3 and Saturday 4 November at 7.30pm
Red seats - £14.50, concessions £12.50, dance schools £10.50

Ballet Cymru present a brand-new evening-length work choreographed by International choreographer Tim Podesta, and featuring ex-Royal Ballet Principal Dancer and Royal Ballet Guest Principal Mara Galeazzi.
Shadow Aspect refers to an unconscious aspect of the personality that the conscious mind does not identify in itself. In short, the shadow is the dark side.
“To know yourself, you must accept your dark side. To deal with others' dark sides, you must also know your darkside.” Carl Jung
Mara Galeazzi was born in Brescia and studied at La Scala, Milan. She joined The Royal Ballet in 1992 and was promoted to First Artist in 1995, Soloist at the end of the 1997/98 Season and Principal in September 2003. She has danced every major role in the classical repertory and had many roles created for her by top choreographers around the world.
In May 2006 she is appointed 'Best Italian Dancer Abroad' (Danza & Danza Award). In November 2003 she received the nomination as Best Female Dancer at Critics’ Circle National Dance Award.
She has appeared as guest artist with the Stuttgart Ballet, Carla Fracci's Teatro dell'Opera in Rome and the Scottish Ballet. She also danced with Irek Mukhamedov, Carlos Acosta, Tetsuya Kumakawa and their companies. On the 7th March 2009 Mara was awarded the medal “Cavaliere Ordine al Merito della Repubblica Italiana” (Knighthood) by the President of Italy.
