This original devised work is the graduating piece by Theatre Company 2019 – the first graduates of the Bachelor of Fine Arts (Theatre) – developed in collaboration with graduating Production students. The work was conceived, researched, written and designed by the students themselves and reflects their commitment to ensemble collaborative practice and the creation of new Australian work.

Swim Between the Flags is a formally ambitious work in two parts: a not-so-distant past, where imminent emergencies are ignored, and a possible future, where speed, excess and violence have become the new normal. Should we laugh or cry when everything begins to move too fast – too furiously?

Swim Between the Flags observes some of the urgent issues of our time with humour, intelligence and imagination.

Devised and Performed by: Theatre Company 2019 Presented by: Theatre and Production
