This September we’re incredibly excited to take our performance, The Swings, across the Atlantic for its North American premiere at Toronto International Festival of Authors!

Performances take place throughout the Festival weekends offering a unique one of-a-kind experience; an aerial dance duet on a a giant five-metre tall swing installation, that unlocks joyful childhood memories and sparks imagination.

Across the 11 days of the festival, The Swings will feature as a free family event located at the Harbourfront Centre. The event will not only include scheduled aerial performances, but also an opportunity for guests to hop on and take part in a fun, interactive activity, experiencing the joy of swinging and immersing you in a playful world of wonder! The Swings will be fully accessible to accommodate guests of all sizes and needs.
