Small World Theatre presents the launch of ‘Lament’ a brilliant and haunting moving image piece by artist filmmaker Sean Vicary. ‘Lament’ interweaves animation, poetry and music to explore a personal narrative and examine ideas of loss, longing and belonging in the Welsh border landscape.
The exclusive event on Friday 24 February, 8pm at Small World Theatre includes the artist and renowned musicians, Ceri Rhys Matthews, Christine Cooper and Ceri Jones in an innovative performance with live projection and improvised music. At the end of this performance there will be an opportunity to explore the ideas and making of the work in a discussion chaired by cultural activist Osi Rhys Osmond.
This unique evening is also supported by the Arts Council of Wales Night Out scheme and continues with an intimate acoustic concert where the musicians will further develop the themes.
