We spread disease.
We eat a load of shit.
We are flies.
SWARM is an experimental, dark comedy exploring the connection between toxic expressions of white privilege and the behaviour of flies. Using characters, stand-up and spoken word, SWARM subverts the language used to dehumanise migrants to re-tell a far more evocative reality.
SWARM emphasises the characterisations and iconography of our deluded world, blending humour and calamity to articulate the chaos within our social and political conflicts, drawing attention to an overwhelming need for compassion.
