For those who haven't yet seen it... Staged entirely in water, and set against the backdrop of the Easter Rising in Ireland, At Swim, Two Boys is a tender and visually beautiful production that tells of the developing love between two teenage boys. The space slowly fills with water as the boys’ relationship unfolds, and they go into the sea to swim... Inspired by Jamie O’Neill’s award-winning novel, this is Earthfall at their most extreme, emotionally and physically; with live music, film, and breathtaking choreography.
