Swansea-based theatre group Antic Corporation’s latest work is the poignant true story of Josef Herman.

Josef was a Polish-born artist who fled his native Warsaw in the 1930s to escape the growing antisemitism.

He ended up living in a small mining community in the Swansea Valley.

This new play is a humorous and tender look at the relationship Herman had with Wales.

It shows how the community of Ystradgynlais became his muse and helped define his work and reputation as an artist.

The production features a contemporary urban folk score by Swansea-based composer Andy Jones.
