Swyn-gân/Summoning

Lovely commission during the pandemic, part of National Dance Company Wales’ “Plethu/Weave” series.. https://ndcwales.co.uk/plethu-weave-swyn-gan

“‘Swyn- gân/Summoning’, … is performed, choreographed, and directed by Jo Shapland. Here video editing seems to become part of the dance itself. The Welsh landscape is turned into a series of shots, ingredients to be added to the ‘witch’s cauldron’ evoked by clare e. potter’s poem. As Shapland’s movements allude to ‘the sea’s graffiti’, we are invited to enjoy a landscape where ‘the baptized words are brining’ and to honour the Welsh landscape’s ability to inspire.”
