Trees in the ancient woodland of Wepre Park, near Connah's Quay in Flintshire, have become the eerie backdrop for a play by National Theatre Wales.

Branches: The Nature of Crisis is being staged as part of the finale of the London 2012 Festival and the Cultural Olympiad.

Argentinian physical theatre practitioner Constanza Macras and artists from her Berlin-based company Dorkypark have joined forces with Welsh professional dancers and musicians, and around 30 performers from the local community.
