Background


The Colours has been created from interviews conducted with patients at Ty Olwen Hospice in Swansea and Velindre Cancer Centre in Cardiff.


From the team behind The Listening Room.


Synopsis


“It would be abnormal if someone didn't die.

You know, that would be very strange.

We'd pay a lot of attention, I think, if that happened.”


Five people lie on a Welsh beach, moving through fantasy, memory and reality as they process the most profound yet ordinary of experiences: nearing the end of life.


As they describe moments from their lives, dig into their present experience and reflect on what the future has in store, we are taken on a rollercoaster ride of the human imagination … and transported all the way to the brink; as far as the eye can see.
