About the show
June 2010 / Barmouth
FOR MOUNTAIN, SAND & SEA
Marc Rees’ artworks are known for their flamboyant, humorous and often extreme interpretations of history, culture and personal experience. He won the Wales bid for the London 2012 Cultural Olympiad project ‘Artists Taking the Lead’ with his work Adain Avion for which he transported the fuselage of a DC9 aeroplane across Wales as a mobile art space.
For Mountain, Sand & Sea followed in the footsteps of the Victorian excursionists who once visited the Welsh coast during the summer months. Split into two groups, one would explore the mountains while the other went off to the seaside. In ‘For Mountain, Sand & Sea’, National Theatre Wales invited the audience to become excursionists for the day, and to explore the hidden history of Barmouth. Artists from around the world, together with the local community, made ‘For Mountain, Sand & Sea’ a theatrical event not to be missed.
