Bryn Celli Ddu – the Mound in the Dark Grove – is probably the best-known prehistoric monument on Anglesey, and is one of the most evocative archaeological sites in Britain. Like other prehistoric tombs on Anglesey it was constructed to protect and pay respect to the remains of the ancestors.

What sets Bryn Celli Ddu apart from the other tombs is that it is  accurately aligned to coincide with the rising sun on the longest day of the year. At dawn on midsummer solstice, shafts of light from the rising sun penetrate down the passageway to light the inner burial chamber.

Created as a collaborative arts experience between Cadw, Tin Shed Theatre Company, Arts Council Wales, Tactile Bosch, Galeri Caernarfon, Oriel Môn, and Manchester Metropolitan University, the project was a bilingual, outdoor art event that sought to interrogate landscape, ritual, and the celebration of archaeology through creative interpretation.

The day was filled with demonstrations of neolithic flint knapping, weaving and basket making, as well as Kristoffer Hughes who is Chief of the Anglesey Druid Order. This was topped by an evening live performance on top of the burial chamber with immersive soundscapes and a live performance from international artist, Gwenno, and emerging artist and Green Man Rising Winner of 2021, Teddy Hunter.

We have worked with many cultural organisations and local authorities. What really stood out for us about Tin Shed Theatre Company is that they really get what community is and not only are they fantastic creative producers, but also put a lot of thought and energy into the engagement aspect . We were so well looked after and came away feeling really valued.
