Swarm (2010)Live-action dance film.
Twisted Theatre presents Swarm, a dance film from award winning directors Miranda Cromwell and Joseph Wallace with an original score by composer Elizabeth Westcott.
A dance film made in the very beggining of Twisted Theatre's existence. A wonderful experiement in a derelict building. Swarm was made with no funding and through the love and creativity of all involved.
The company's first major work, Swarm is a tale of lust and instinct, violence and betrayal.Swarm premiered at the Bristol Old Vic theatre in November 2010 and was screened at Bird's Eye View festival 2011 in London as part of the Branchage open surgery.
