Stark, hopeful, bold and shot through with joy, Bethan shares her story. Embodying an exuberant and contagious freedom, she draws on her experiences of healing deep trauma from sexual and domestic violence.
A visceral journey told through film projection, movement, clown and spoken word. A story of falling into darkness, fighting demons inside and out, of getting back up again, and re-finding the light.
So, what can we do when painful things happen to us? Where can we go to find healthy recognition? Who will hold us? Witness us? Listen to us? Help and support us? How can we rewrite and reclaim our stories? Where is the space to take our 'ugly'? To share our pain, our grief, our trauma, our rage? Right here, on this stage?
"You are speaking out what my mind has questioned forever."
“The storytelling was beautiful; I was totally captivated and enjoyed the fun moments too.”
