In Welsh folk dance we refer to some of the patterns as a "pleth" or a plait. There are many variations of a pleth, just the top couple crossing top and bottom, everyone crossing just top.... The pathways created in the space are intricate and interesting to watch and dance. There is something about the terminology too, "plethu" to plait, to bring several parts together to make them stronger. Perhaps for us, on this project, it's the past and the present, drawing upon memories and the act of remembering to tell stories that are rooted in a cultural history that has shaped our sense of ourselves.
