"Challenging, provocative and funny, too, Swallow is a brave dissection of the intergenerational divide where the personal is undeniably political." The Guardian

" Combining a poignant and thought-provoking script with incredible aerial choreography, Everything I See I Swallow is a stark examination of modern feminism" Frankly My Dear...

"This production presented two opposing feminist views at war, which was beautifully represented through the art of rope work...This intimate production is laced with humour and moments of stillness." Number 9

"A male reviewer who should or should not have been discomfited by a dramatic articulation of the sexual objectification of women came away with a reinvigorated understanding of what it means to be female in a time of rapid cultural and technological evolution. This was a performance of rare beauty and vision." Yorkshire Times

"The play wrestles with the concepts of exploitation, freedom of expression, pornogrpahy and art. Played out with ropes as the main prop it is an intense theatrical experience. The aerial work is stunning as it acts as a metaphor for the young woman’s experience."

AUDIENCE REVIEWS

"Everything I See I Swallow is a genuinely innovative and challenging piece of contemporary theatre, fusing aerialism and spoken word to explore changing generational attitudes to sex and sexuality. It explores some of the most difficult issues of our time – but reminds us that the bond between a mother and her children is stronger than anything. Occasionally shocking – the aerial duets are stunning.” 

Steve Cowton, Head of Theatre Operations at The Lowry

"Erotic, beautiful, challenging"

"Beautiful and powerfully affecting...for all women, mothers especially"

"It’s not often that you get to see a work like this. It was empowering, beautiful, it asked questions and it explored vital family relationships...I am really pleased to see a circus performance that ‘has something to say’"

"Challenging, heartwarming, open ended, human"

"Thanks for a great show last night at Harlow. As a sixty year-old father of a 30 year-old non-binary polyamorous daughter it resonated. The show was a great combination of spectacle and insight. Thanks for a memorable and entertaining evening. Everyone should see it if they can. "

"I have just seen your show at the Didcot Cornerstone and I wanted to thank you for bringing the show here. It's been quite a while since I've watched a performance that plucked at my innards with quite such intensity...those relationships resonated with me so strongly, thinking about my relationship with my own body and sexuality, and with my own mother...It was a beautiful performance."
