A survivor is stranded on the shores of the near future. In a world drowning in plastic she collects messages in bottles. Stories cannot be told in solitude. Wreck Receivers, Storyline Weavers. Messages received and understood.
Inspired by historical stories of sailors, survivors, wreckers, and rescuers from the coastline of Wales. “Shipwrecks – Receivers of The Wreck” is staged on a lone, broken ship on a post-industrial shore where scavengers trawl through the abandoned waste that traps the last messages of those lost at sea.This is a highly physical show with an original soundscape combining aerial circus with dance-theatre, telling a universal story of how our desire for solitude weighs against the need for collective action for the greater good.
