All or Nothing Aerial Theatre is bringing its sky-high swingset to TIFA! Part performance and part installation, The Swings is both an aerial dance duet and an open invitation for the public to swing high and free.

Performances take place throughout the Festival weekends with opportunities for visitors to hop on and experience the joy of swinging while a soundscape of thought, memory and feeling immerses you in a playful world of wonder.

This event features a 20-minute performance followed by time for audience participation.

Prior to this event, Javier Moscoso, author of Arc of Feeling: The History of the Swing, and All or Nothing Director Jennifer Paterson will be in conversation about the history, anthropology and human joy of the swing. Learn more, here.
