Shôn Dale Jones

STILL FLOATING is a brand new piece of warm-hearted comic storytelling by BBC award-winning writer/performer Shôn Dale-Jones. A story about love, resilience and laughing at the things that should make us cry.

When someone suggests that Shôn should remount his 2006 Total Theatre award-winning hit show FLOATING (Barbican, Sydney Opera House) about the Isle of Anglesey floating away from mainland Britain, he is sure it isn’t what the world needs right now. 2006 is not 2022. As Shôn explains why he shouldn’t present the show we find out that sometimes going backwards helps us move forwards. Told by two-time Fringe First winner, this is a funny, uplifting and moving story, making the real and unreal fit together in one surprising whole.

'The great Welsh storyteller' Lyn Gardner, StageDoor
'Dale-Jones is in a longstanding tradition of digressive raconteurs, like Ken Campbell' Wales Arts Review
'a winning performer' The Guardian
'a captivating storyteller' Time Out
'disarming mix of compassion, comedy, unease and anger …his beguiling writing style…carefully and cleverly tying all the seemingly disparate strands together to coalesce around the human need for connection – to our home, to our past, to each other' ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ The Scotsman
