Half submerged in a cramped bathtub, and flooded by her grief, Beth decides to walk the South West Coast Path – in choosing to walk, grow, and to reclaim space, she finds radical joy.
Using lyrical movement and projections of the Coast Path, Right of Way explores our intimate connection with the coastline, bodies of water and our heritage. Written whilst walking the South West Coast Path, it is an autobiographical and embodied reflection on disability, chronic illness and being a Young Carer.
Fresh from a 5 star, award-nominated run at VAULT Festival, in partnership with Devon Carers, the South West Coast Path Association and Arts & Culture Exeter. Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England. Right of Way features integrated creative captioning as part of the video design.

★★★★★ “Raw, heartbreaking, and altogether beautiful, Beth Bowden’s semi-autobiographical Right of Way is a poetic jewel waiting to be uncovered.” Everything Theatre
