November 4th, 2016 – November 13th, 2016


Gruesome, spine-tingling, and unrelenting, Swan follows a group of young queer women as they piece together a vicious, disturbing episode from their school days 10 years ago. What starts as a reluctant club reunion becomes a frenzied attempt to wake up from a nightmarish revisiting of the past. Performed in episodic, storytelling vignettes, Swan explores the idea of growing up coloured in a predominantly white neighbourhood, the journey of discovering home as the second generation children of immigrants, and how the feeling of cultural inferiority can twist people into suburban monsters. (
