This summer, a new show that’s part theatre, part gig and part film, will be streaming to audiences around the world. Presented by the National Theatre Wales, Possible is a story about love and resilience, told in an unusual and slightly quirky way.
Originally the show was going to be all about love… and then COVID-19 hit. So now, the show’s creator and performer Shôn Dale-Jones has reimagined Possible to explore themes of love, resilience and connection. It’s now a playful and profound piece of storytelling about love and finding the courage to explore the past, in order to shape the future. Something we can all relate to.
A different type of storytelling
And the way the story is told has changed too. Instead of creating the show for the stage, everything has been designed for a 16 x 9 screen. Set to an emotive soundtrack, with live music and surreal cinematic visuals, it’s an experience that’s part theatre, part spoken word, part gig and part film.
The challenges of the pandemic have led the theatre to look at ways of reaching more people, despite a reduced seating capacity. And from it, this innovative style of storytelling has emerged. And hopefully, it will play a part in helping to reach new audiences whilst providing a much needed boost to the theatre during tough times.
You can catch Possible as it is live streamed from The Riverfront in Newport. Or watch at any time you fancy, once it’s available on demand.
Please note that Possible contains content that some audience members may find triggering.
