It’s an 8km swim from Güzelçamli, Turkey to the Greek Island of Samos. That’s 160 lengths of an Olympic sized swimming pool.
Swim is a new creation in-development by Jivesh Parasram and Tom Arthur Davis that imagines the effects of migration on the self. Originally conceived as a performance event with a live endurance swimming audience component, Swim is being reimagined as a walking meditation/audio play for the SummerWorks Lab.
