Rygbi: Annwyl i mi/Dear to me

Rygbi: Annwyl i mi / Dear to me is a short 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 through 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 and brings together communities to create legends; and in Rygbi, we rewrite that in dance. 

The Rygbi project is created with input from rugby fans and players across Wales.
