Join artist Janetka Platun and the Lab to find the centre of Haverfordwest on January 21, in a performance event that begins at various locations  on the periphery of the town,  and ends in 17 High Street as part of the current Searching for the Centre commission.

From 11.30 to 2.00,  four women wearing traditional clothes worn by the Llangwm fisherwomen will be walking into Haverfordwest  from four cardinal points starting on the outskirts,  asking  the people they encounter  for directions to  the ‘centre’.

The four departure locations will be:

North – Debenhams, Withybush Retail Park

South – Tesco Extra

East – Higgon’s Well on the River Cleddau

West – The Hive, Garth Youth & Community Project

Look out for them.

This will be followed by a gathering in 17 High Street from 2.00 until 4.00pm, where  there will be an opportunity to join the artist, the performance participants and representatives of Confluence, to continue the conversation and ‘get to the heart of the matter.’

Keep an eye out on the Western Telegraph in the run up to January 21.

“The Llangwm fisherwomen were strongly connected to the river and had a unique relationship to the centre of Haverfordwest. Their presence can act as a metaphor for current feelings of emptiness, entanglement and being lost. As they carry their baskets in search of the centre they can transcend time and help us to think about what the future might hold”.
