St Agnes' Eve – at 1:25: Performance in Miniature.

Directed by Mike Pearson, this is a 'performance in miniature' in collaboration with theatre designers Anna Kelsey and Sebastian Noel to reimagine Ivor Davies's 'happening' staged on 21 January 1968 during the Swansea Arts Festival. Drawing on traditions of model-making in the National Museum and Victorian toy theatres, the event uses a specially constructed scale model and available documentation to enact a historic performance at a scale of 1:25.
