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.

Listen to the audio created as a part of their residency here.

Once you’ve had a listen provide feedback on the piece here.

If you need the recording in a visual format, click here for the script.

Join Jiv and Tom to listen live to the recording, followed by a Q&A using the Get Tickets link above.

Co-creators : Jivesh Parasram & Tom Arthur Davis

Collaborators: David Mesiha, Gavan Cheema, Tim Carlson

Presented in partnership with Why Not Theatre and co-produced by Theatre Conspiracy, with thanks to Crow’s Theatre for previous development support.


Part of the SummerWorks Lab programming – a place for exploration, experimentation, and process. In the Lab, you can experience new works in development from artists exploring new possibilities in performance.
