About Swarm

After a hit run at Edinburgh Fringe, SWARM returns to VAULT Festival as the ‘Pick of the Pleasance.’ A response to when David Cameron referred to migrants as a “swarm”, SWARM asks: are migrants seeking refuge in the UK really the toxic demographic pervading British society, or is it us? From ‘anarchist clown’ and theatre-maker Liv Ello, the director of the Edinburgh Fringe and Soho Theatre smash-hit, Frankie Thompson’s CAttS (Time Out’s Top 10 Comedy Picks of The Fringe, ★★★★ Guardian, ★★★★ Time Out, ★★★★★ To Do List, ★★★★★ Funny Women) “an invigoratingly nerve-wracking clown [… ] to an activist poet, Ello is a perspective challenging shape-shifter who’s a joy to spend an hour with” – The Scotsman “magnetic” – The Guardian “Ello is a highly energetic and watchable performer. Ello marks themselves out as a distinctive performer; half clown, half activist” – The Stage Content warning: strong language, distressing themes of racial violence and death.
