We are Swanbite Productions and we are raising money for our upcoming show "PRISMS" at The Space theatre October 18th - 22nd. A queer play with live music and puppetry, exploring female expression of love in relation to the male gaze, presented by a female-led creative team.
An international female-led company
Swanbite is an international art collective working primarily in film and theatre.
The female-led company creates aesthetically explosive multimedia art which aims to make you bite your nails, twirl your hair and call your best friend.
The company was created during the Debut Festival at East15 and consists of current and graduate students of the school. The uniqueness of East15 and the opportunity to work across degrees has resulted in Swanbite having members from all over the world and seven different countries.
We wish to combine our unique inputs and constantly learn from each other's traditions and theatre practices creating a company in constant evolution.
When you fall in love colours change
Everyone has a different perception of love, what it is and what it should be.
Some describe themselves as romantics and others deliberately shy away from words like soulmates and destiny.
In Prisms four young women are challenged in their unique expressions to love, as a mysterious note forces them to look at their relation to each other, their friendships and the way they view love.
The play toys with the male gaze as well as internalised misogyny, through funny encounters and awkward misunderstandings. We love having these important conversations with a spoonful of sugar and a touch of self-awareness.
We are raising 1200 pounds to help bring the project to its full potential, by covering expenses included in the production of the show and covering travel for our team as well as van hire for our set.
Productions costs: (£400)
Transport and van hire: (£600)
With a stretch goal of £1800 We can help further develop our project
Future Development/Recording Studio Hire: (£400)
Buy new costumes and replace old props: (£200)
