Rob is a New York cop with a dark past. Debbie is a woman troubled by strange visions about the future. Neither of them are in this show.
It’s just Chris. Chris is a poet. His poems once got described as “pulling at the loose threads of life to see how quickly it can all unravel.”
Tues 24 – Thurs 26 May 2022
Written and performed by Liz Richardson
Liz grew up in the Lake District. She spent her childhood walking in the fells, playing in the lakes and in the river at the end of her garden. After time away living in the City, Liz returns to the hills and into a new village for a new chapter of her life. But when her new community is rocked by tragedy, Liz rediscovers outdoor swimming and how it can keep both her and her new friends afloat. Filled with humour and heart, live music and projection, SWIM is a tender tale based on a true story.

A hell of a lot can happen in the time you await the results of a pregnancy test. This is the story of a woman staring down the barrel of motherhood, torn between her own ambivalence… and an uncontrollable urge to push.
Created by award-winning Popelei, PUSH is a high-octane solo performance interlacing darkly comic text, exhilarating choreography and original music by acclaimed Chilean composer Santiago Jara Astaburuaga.
