• Morfa Rhuddlan: walks

Siriol Joyner

Ten years ago I came across an interview in which a folk fiddle player described a 'lost dance, a lament for one woman commemorating the death of Llywelyn, the last Prince of Wales.' 

Morfa Rhuddlan has emerged from my quest to find this 'lost dance'.

You can experience Morfa Rhuddlan through three elements. An open studio to which all are welcome, a series of walks and a dance piece.

Information about the walks

The walks are intended for small groups of people, with up to three people at a time. They will start from the foyer at Chapter and last approximately 90 minutes.

Siriol will take the audience for each walk through the story of Morfa Rhuddlan, how she came across it and the different practices that she's working with. During the walk Siriol will also invite the audience to do two elements of the dance score for the piece with her. 

Each walk will respond to the group of people involved, but if there is anything you would like us to know before taking part do drop an email to info@dance.wales.  

The walks will take place regardless of the weather, but if it is particularly wet indoor shelter will be found. Please check the weather forecast beforehand and wear suitable clothing for the conditions being forecast.

Any bags or personal belongings you bring with you that you don't want to take on the walk will be safely looked after at Chapter by Cardiff Dance Festival staff.
