Half submerged in a cramped bathtub and flooded by her grief Beth decides to walk the South West Coast Path - in choosing to walk grow and to reclaim space she finds radical joy.
Using lyrical movement and projections of the Coast Path RIGHT OF WAY explores our intimate connection with the coastline bodies of water and our heritage. Written while walking the South West Coast Path it is an autobiographical and embodied reflection on disability chronic illness and being a Young Carer. RIGHT OF WAY features integrated creative captioning as part of the video design.
Fresh from a 5 star award-nominated run at VAULT Festival in partnership with Devon Carers the South West Coast Path Association and Arts & Culture Exeter. Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
