“People have forgotten how to say ‘no’. That’s the problem in this country. We are allowed to say ‘no’.”

Port Talbot steelworks; site of one of the last heavy industries in Wales, threatened with closure in 2015. The story made headlines around the world, and the Save Our Steel campaign was quick to respond, gathering a momentum that captured the spirit and uncertainty of our times.

So what happens when we come together?  What happens when we say ‘no’?

In Port Talbot, leaders, workers and unions all said no. These people came together to save their jobs and their community.


Based on interviews with steelworkers, union representatives and the people of Port Talbot, We’re Still Here is a site-specific performance. Dynamically staged in the disused Byass Works, it celebrates the unique spirit of the town.
