“Ar ymylon pethau mae’r arloesedd – neu’r ymdarddiad – mwyaf yn digwydd.” Mae Trofannolismo yn ail-ddychmygu mudiad Tropicália Brasilaidd yr 1960au o bersbectif Cymru wledig. 

“It is often at the edges of things that the most innovation - or emergence – occurs.” Trofannolismo is a re-imagination of the 1960s Brazilian Tropicália movement from a perspective of rural Wales.
