Nt Live & DV8 Physical Theatre present… JOHN
Tuesday 9 December, 8.00pm, at Theatr Mwldan Aberteifi | Cardigan
£12.50 (£11.50)

Internationally renowned DV8 Physical Theatre bring their powerful new co-production JOHN to the National Theatre. The performance, conceived and directed by Lloyd Newson is screening at Mwldan on Tuesday 9 December at 8.00pm.

JOHN is a new verbatim dance-theatre work by Lloyd Newson, Artistic Director of DV8 Physical Theatre.

Newson interviewed more than 50 men, asking them frank questions initially about love and sex. One of those men was John.

What emerged was a story that is both extraordinary and touching. Years of crime, drug use and struggling to survive lead John on a search in which his life converges with others, in an
unexpected place, unknown by most. JOHN authentically depicts real-life stories, combining movement and spoken word.

DV8 Physical Theatre return to the National following their acclaimed productions To Be Straight With You, Can We Talk About This? and Just for Show. DV8 have made 18 works and won many awards since their inception in 1986, including a Grand Prix de Danse, an International Emmy for Performing Arts, a Rose d’Or and three Prix Italia.

Contains adult themes, strong language and nudity. Suitable for 18 years +.
Tickets for John are £12.50 (£11.50) and are available now from Mwldan's Box Office on 01239 621200, online or via Smartphones at
