A ★★★★★ award-nominated new solo show by Beth Bowden exploring chronic illness, Young Carers and the South West Coast Path
‘I take a body – this body, this breath, this space – and locate myself as a dot in the landscape, to say I AM HERE / WE WERE HERE because We and She are the local landscape. We and She is the local landscape’
Half submerged in a cramped bathtub and flooded by her grief, Beth decides to walk the South West Coast Path – in choosing to walk, grow, and to reclaim space, she finds radical joy.
Using lyrical movement and projections of the Coast Path, Right Of Way explores our intimate connection with the coastline, bodies of water and our heritage. Written whilst walking the South West Coast Path, it is an autobiographical and embodied reflection on disability, chronic illness and being a Young Carer. Right Of Way features integrated creative captioning as part of the video design.
Fresh from a ★★★★★ award-nominated run at Vault Festival, in partnership with Devon Carers, the South West Coast Path Association and Arts & Culture Exeter. Supported through public funding from Arts Council England.
