Maynard, come home…

Maynard, come home… 11-12 May 2013

A dancer lies on the ground, looks at the sky and breathes in the clouds, a spacewalking Apollo 9 astronaut describes his view of the earth, an embryo performs growth gestures in utero, a raven flies the same territory its whole life. Home is a complex web of phenomena and reflects a universal and interspecies drive for safety and shelter. How are we adapting our relationships to home in environmentally and culturally contested times?

In a 2-day event in the village of Abercych, Pembrokeshire, a gathering of dance artists’ perform, screen and workshop their questions about Home and Homecoming.

(Maynard has no answers, but plenty of questions…)

With contributions from Simon Whitehead, Rosemary Lee, Henry Montes and Marcus Coates, Anushiye Yarnell, Bwyd Sonique, Ben Stammers, Siriol Joiner and Joanna Young.

With places for up to 30 delegates the £40 fee includes lunch on saturday and brunch on sunday, access to all presentations, films and workshops. Including entry to a Twmpath with a difference in Abercych village Hall, with social dances, music and dance interventions.

‘Dance embraces difference, creates new languages and narratives of the places we thought we knew.’ Simon Whitehead.

Curated by movement artist Simon Whitehead, Maynard, come home… is presented in his home village of Abercych as part of a Creative Wales Award from the Arts Council of Wales 2012-13.
