Theatre in Wales

Plays and dance productions in Wales since 1982...

At Swim Two Boys by Jessica Cohen and Jim Ennis
First presented in 2004 by Earthfall
cast size:2
AT SWIM TWO BOYS is based in the successful novel by Irish author Jamie O’Neill and this pioneering company’s treatment of the book includes slowly flooding the stage with water during the performance. If your vision of boys dancing about in puddles is ‘Singing in the Rain’ this show certainly isn’t it!!!

AT SWIM TWO BOYS is inspired by Jamie O’Neill’s award winning novel about the deep friendship between two teenage boys under the backdrop of the 1916 Easter Rising in Ireland and war in mainland Europe.  Earthfall continue to develop their trademark performance styles, at this new production shows them at their most extreme emotionally & physically, with live film, live music composed by Roger Mills, breathtaking choreography and design.  This is the 16th production for Cardiff-based award-winning Director/Choreographers Jessica Cohen and Jim Ennis.

Performed by Cai Tomos (who has just been commissioned to choreograph his first work for Diversions) and Terry Michael, AT SWIM TWO BOYS will only have a limited run of three performances in Cardiff this year.  It will undertake a major UK and European tour next spring
