This spectacular giant production is as
emotional as it is epic. A new myth for a new
paradigm. There is no leader who is not a bridge.

The Mabinogian story of Bran the Blessed
is one of the most cherished stories of Welsh
culture. He is a hero a king and a bridge to
his people. In the build up to the arrival of the
giant, as yet still in pieces, the members of the
“society of Bran” gather the crowds with giant
tricycle trailers towing the legs, arms and torso
to the area where the readers of the portents
hilariously enact the story that is over 1000
years old. IACHÂD BENDIGEIDFRAN / THE
HEALING OF BRAN THE BLESSED takes
up the story in the present day and with retro
engineered ritual they re-assemble the giant,
bringing him to life and helping him stand and
walk. (A very magical moment) the healing of
the giant represents the healing of his people
and in turn the healing of the Celtic nations. His
voice, deep and sonorous speaks in the Welsh
language the English commentary from the cast
opens this piece to a wide audience.
