Tir

Tir S4/C

I was born in this place.

With soil in my lungs and rain on my skin.

Two hundred acres.

Wide fields, thick hedgerows and and dense green pastures.

Tir Sir Gar

A Rural Vision

By Marc Rees & Roger Williams

A family is forced to decide the future of their farm following the sudden illness of the father. Will one of his children step forward to keep the family tradition alive? What is the relationship of the younger generation with the land? What is lost when people stop farming and leave the countryside?

Tir Sir Gar was an unique event by Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru that offered an alternative contemporary rural vision during April 2013. It integrated 2 sites in Carmarthen – the County museum in Abergwili and St Peter’s Civic Hall in the centre of town.

Câr Sir Gâr
This booklet commissioned and produced by Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru celebrates a selection of farmers and food producers based in Carmarthenshire. They are real examples of companies that are successfully continuing the traditions of food production in a part of Wales in which agriculture has always been fundamental.
