EVERYTHING I SEE I SWALLOW
“I’m not just an object. I’ve made a choice. To be here, to be tied, and… not to deny my sexuality.”
An art curator discovers that her daughter has amassed over 50,000 followers by posting semi-naked images of herself on Instagram. Is this freedom of expression or exploitation and what is the difference? When does art become pornography and vice versa? How does a mother protect her daughter and when does protection become control?
Set against a backdrop of shifting generational attitudes to empowerment, feminism and sexuality and fusing theatre and aerial work with the erotic art of Japanese rope bondage - shibari, Everything I See I Swallow is a fascinating exploration of epic themes in an intimate setting.
Swallow has just returned from a highly successful run at the 2019 Edinburgh Festival Fringe where it won 2 awards: the prestigious Fringe First award, awarded by The Scotsman newspaper for innovation and outstanding new writing, and the Broadway World award for best circus/physical show. Swallow started 2020 off with prestigious inclusion in the Stage's top 50 shows of 2019 and the team looks forward to another exciting year.
Swallow toured during winter 2019, spring 2020 prior to the pandemic - See the tour page for dates. We will be looking to tour again in 2021.
Commissioned by The Lowry and supported by Arts Council England, Caterham School and Actors Of Dionysus.
