Come and enter our world and playground of The Swings. We love being on a swing and we know you do too!
Part performance and part installation, The Swings is both an aerial dance duet and an open invitation for the public to swing high and free. It all takes place on our magnificent, larger than life, five metre high swing set.
A giant swing set, 5 m high and 2 swings. 2 aerial artists use the Swings as their aerial apparatus to fly high and appear throughout the day. They appear and disappear opening the Swings up for anyone to come and join in, to sit and swing.
Whilst you are on the swing a sound installation plays full of memories, thoughts and feelings of being on a Swing. Feel the rush of air past your face, the rise and fall and the joy of swinging that we love too.
Play, watch and listen. An interactive event for all the family.
