As part of my role at National Theatre Wales, I worked to produce the digital elements of this Production, which included a multi-camera, multi-site livestream from a busy high street in Cardiff and a Forest in Flintshire to the Web, Smart TV and a billboard in Cardiff City Centre. There was also an interactive message function between online audiences and people on the high street in Cardiff and the performers in a forest in Flintshire. We worked in collaboration with BBC Cymru and The Space.
About the Production
In September 2012, Argentinian choreographer Constanza Macras explored the influences of nature in a forest in North Wales. In here first UK commission, she worked with a group of Welsh and Wales-based performers, alongside members of her own company DorkyPark. Combining text, storytelling, live music and movement, Branches: The Nature of Crisis took the audience on a surreal walk through the woods of Wepre Park, Flintshire, entwining the stories of the Mabinogion and visions of the hen parties of Cardiff City Centre.
