100 Conwy people in song and dance film Boombox Eryri

A total of 100 Conwy residents are starring in a film, making a song and dance about their favourite music and places in the county.

Boombox Eryri has been filmed over 12 weeks by arts organisation Migrations in collaboration with Austrian artist David Subal with scenes including the wilds of Denbigh Moors and Snowdonia to football pitches and coastal scenes.

It was inspired by New York-based performer and art director Ely Kim's Boombox after he was filmed dancing in 100 locations to his favourite music and who has also been collaborating on the project.

Kim will introduce the short film during a screening at Llywelyn's, Llanrwst, on Friday at 19:30 BST.

A documentary showing the making of the film and why people chose a certain song and location is due to be made later in the year.

Migrations project manager Iwan Williams said the film shows how much fun it is to dance, but also to give a sense of "where we are, where we are from and what part music plays in our lives".

He added: "It's been an amazing experience collaborating with Ely and David and of course all the people from Conwy, who have been brilliant taking part in this unique project."
