Holm: an island in a river

Come with us and explore Flat Holm island through an immersive film installation.

Created by SheWolf, a disability-led company that brings landscape alive through performance, this installation captures the company’s year-long residency on Cardiff’s closest island – an island at risk from rising sea levels.

This filmed site-responsive work deeply inhabits and enlivens the hidden stories of Flat Holm’s landscape, scattered with wildflowers growing through the crumbling remains of centuries of human occupation, re-awakening them in the imagination of the public.

Told through the body and voice of a lone woman in chronic pain, across the cycle of a year’s turn, this is an intimate duet between broken body and damaged earth – the search for home/holm in Flat Holm’s brutal yet beautiful embrace.

Find No Place Like (Flat) Holm at BOCS. It's a free installation running throughout the festival so just turn up.
