    SWARM

    Tickets £12 (£10)
    SWARM is a surreal dark comedy exploring the connection between toxic expressions of privilege and the behaviour of flies. Using character comedy, stand-up and spoken word, SWARM subverts the language used to dehumanise those othered in British society to re-tell a far more evocative reality.

    "There are over 250,000 different species of flies. And you're one of them."

    SWARM is an experimental, dark comedy exploring the connection between expressions of white privilege and the behaviour of flies.

    Using character comedy, clown, stand-up and spoken word, SWARM subverts the language used to dehumanise those who are othered to re-tell a far more evocative reality. As a response piece to when David Cameron referred to migrants as a "swarm", this show asks: are migrants seeking refuge in the UK really the toxic demographic pervading British society, or is it us?

    After our sell-out production at Camden People’s Theatre as part of SPRINT festival in 2020, SWARM is re-born and more relevant than ever.

    “It means so much to be working at CPT, it’s such a good opportunity to work in a professional environment at my age. I didn’t think that was ever going to happen and it means the world to me. It’s really going to help prepare me for my future and where I want to go”
