Swim to the Sea

On a hot summer day, a performer swims from the town centre to the river on a tricycle. The choreographer-director attempts to intervene in the everyday lives of local residents via an improvisation, to investigate the traces of the audience’s reactions aroused by an upstaged performance, despite the huge culture gap and language differences. Through the representation of a screen, every moves of the audience became a part of the performance. They participated in it. As days go by, life returns to normal,but will the scenery built by the participants be easily washed away by time?
