National Theatre Wales stages a new show, Possible, a playful and profound piece of storytelling about love and finding the courage to explore the past, in order to shape the future.
Set to an emotive soundtrack, with live music and surreal cinematic visuals, it’s an experience that’s part theatre, part spoken word, part gig and part film, streaming live and on demand this June and July.
Commissioned in 2019, Possible was going to be a show all about how we imagine and discover love in our lives. But then the pandemic arrived, driving the show’s creator, Shôn Dale-Jones, to reimagine things. “I wanted to capture the emotional journey we’ve been on since the pandemic exploded into our lives and make something which might hold us together around the things that really matter,” Shôn said.
Not only did the show’s narrative change with the arrival of Covid-19, but the way it was created had to change too. Rather than creating songs, music and video in the same room, the team had to collaborate remotely from different cities. And instead of creating the show for the stage, everything has had to be designed for a 16 x 9 screen.
Streamed live from The Riverfront in Newport from 29 Jun – 2 Jul, then available on demand from 6 – 13 Jul. shows/possible/
