Review of Hiraeth

Tramway as part of the Unlimited Festival 15th – 16th September 2016.

“…a sensory journey…a cathartic ritual…Hiraeth is a sombre, moving and completely fitting tale for the present day, but one that feels imbued with a sense of the history of struggle for the stateless everywhere.”
