The Gathering/Yr Helfa was a promenade performance commissioned by National Theatre Wales (NTW). Having spent three years observing farm life at Hafod Y Llan farm, an Upland Hill farm at the foothills of Snowdon near the town of Beddgelert, Louise Anne Wilson’s production The Gathering/Yr Helfa takes some of the key aspects of Upland Sheep farming as thematic and aesthetic material for her site-specific promenade production.
In this review, I discuss site-specific performance in relation to the work of Yr Helfa.
