Hear Us And Hasten is a collaboratively devised storytelling performance deeply rooted in the North Sea and North Welsh landscapes of the performer’s homes. Created with support from the Village Storytelling Festival and Tasgadh by two of Britain’s leading young storytellers, Ffion Phillips and Ailsa Dixon It is an upfront reckoning with the climate‘s fragility and those narratives, both old and new, which so easily cast young women’s bodies into the jaws of waiting beasts. But, this show is, most importantly, a celebration of being alive, right now. As Ffion and Ailsa say - it’s a triangle; story, people, landscapes, if connection between any of these three is weak we all suffer.
