Following on from the success of WNO Field and Magic Butterfly our digital installation for 2018, Rhondda Rebel, brings suffragette Margaret Haig Thomas, to life by blending augmented reality with performance and music to create a new stimulating experience.
This breathtaking performance will premiere at Sessions House in Usk and then tour as an innovative installation to locations across Wales and England. Sessions House is located next to the prison where Margaret Haig Thomas was incarcerated for blowing up a Newport post box with a home-made bomb.
