Desperate times call for desperate pleasures: This exhilarating comedy of trauma is set in a post-9/11 and -Hurricane Katrina world, where disaster, threat and survival are a way of life. Smell the fear, feel their pain, marvel at the devastation… shrug and thank God it’s not you.
“An all-consuming journey through a kind of spoken word mash-up sound performance … Funny and sophisticated.” Semiconductor
“Eliot’s Murder in the Cathedral rescues Beckett’s Not I from the Towering Inferno.” Tata Yield
“Wonderfully witty, playful and mischievous, whilst at the same time engaging with serious and timely underlying social concerns.” Val Drayton, John Hansard Gallery
“Impeccably self-conscious and ironic, witty and intelligent, easily exposing the absurdity of the disaster movie genre while paying affectionate homage. But to describe the piece as delightful is not to deny its substance and many resonances. It is riveting, high-intensity stuff.” Dany Louise, AN Interface
“I was swept up and carried along.” “Relentless!” “Defies any genre.” “An exhilarating experience.” Everyone else

Swans have confirmed line-up details for next April’s independently curated festival: Mouth to Mouth Curator Event.
Says Gira, “This is the first installment in what we hope to be a yearly festival, focused on disparate music and genres. Artists are chosen based on their ability to resuscitate, set fire to the air, or to mesmerize. All of the performers chosen for this year’s festival I find personally to be compelling in this regard. The goal: joy!”
