Theatr Brycheiniog

Theatr Brycheiniog


For the last two years adventurer Pip Stewart has travelled on expeditions to the Amazon to get a worm's eye view of issues in the region. These include gold mining, cattle ranching and deforestation - topics that can seem so removed from our everyday life.

Pip has cycled along Brazil's TransAmazonian Highway, lived with indigenous communities in Peru, and paddled Guyana's Essequibo River from source to sea, a world first, accompanied by the local Wai Wai tribe. Through her adventures Pip has seen first-hand the destructive nature of modernity, and why protecting wild places and the rich cultures that exist within them is so important.

Perhaps it is the choices we are all making, sometimes unknowingly, that are the biggest danger of all. From building new roads, to buying gold, palm oil or beef, is it time we re-evaluated the choices we make and resulting impact we are having on the world?
