SWALLOWSFEET FESTIVAL

An annual celebration of ORIGINAL dance and performance works FROM INDEPENDENT ARTISTS ALL OVER THE WORLD.

BROUGHT TOGETHER BY THE SWALLOWSFEET COLLECTIVE.


The 2016 Festival filled every space in the The Old Market theatre with performance. Highlights included Swedish-Chilean choreographer Marcella Steén’s piece “a powerfully surreal experience that Vic Reeves and Bob Mortimer would have applauded (Tom Locke, The Argus)”, and the work of Italian performer Irene Russolillo: “Visceral and exquisitely moving” (audience member).
