title. Shadow of a Quiet Society

date. 2015 - 2017

place. Wales, UK for Gwyn Emberton Dance

about. 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. Emberton's distinct choreographic style and sense of theatre combine to make this a ‘visually exquisite’ work.

“Fascinating to behold throughout … superb and captivating piece of work … Quite a standard-setter for … Welsh dance” - Wales Arts Review
