Rygbi: Annwyl i Mi / Dear to Me

Category: Show

Rygbi: Annwyl i Mi / Dear to Me is a 20 minute outdoor dance performance that celebrates rugby in Wales and the hopes, glory and passion of rallying together on and off the pitch.

Rugby and dance are connected though their expertise in movement and through dedicated performances of power and emotion. The sport fuses speed with skill, tears with joy and camaraderie with pride. It brings together communities to create legends. In Rygbi, we rewrite this in dance.

The Rygbi project is created with input from rugby fans and players across Wales. It was premiered at the National Eistedfodd of Wales in 2019 before touring to Japan to accompany the Welsh Rugby team for the World Cup.
