Blodeuwedd: Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru
Design, Art direction
Blodeuwedd is frustrated, and Llew discontent. After overcoming his mother’s spell by marrying a woman made of flowers, Llew is desperate for an heir. Blodeuwedd’s wild nature is making her feel imprisoned in her own home. When Gronw Pebr falls in love with her, they at last have an opportunity to escape, but first of all, they must kill Llew…
The Woman of Flowers of the Fourth Branch of the Mabinogi is one of the most popular tales in all of Welsh folklore. Saunders Lewis created a classic verse play — completing the work soon after World War II — and reminded us that nature is a dangerous weapon in the hands of man.
