Shadow of a Quiet Society follows on from the success of Gwyn Emberton Dance’s award winning dance theatre production My People.
Inspired by the stories and people from Emberton’s hometown of Montgomery, Shadow of a Quiet Society explores what happens when the people of a small community all have big ideas about who they are.
An all-female cast of internationally renowned dancers, including Eddie Ladd, portray a host of archetypal characters that fight to fit into a world that's not really for them. Together with Emberton’s distinct choreographic style and sense of theatre make this is a “visually exquisite” work.
“Fascinating to behold throughout … superb and captivating piece of work … Quite a standard-setter for … Welsh dance”
- Wales Arts Review
“A choreographer who is able to excite and stimulate but also entertain with flowing, aesthetically pleasing dance”
- Arts Scene in Wales
