SWAN

Calderwood Pavilion, 527 Tremont Street

22 Jun – 25 Jun 2023

If you had to give up everything you knew, everyone you loved, to be something you didn’t understand…would you? SWAN is a fantastical, darkly comedic retelling of Swan Lake that follows Richard, a Korean American college student, and Aiden, a moderately YouTube-famous white tradwife. Their dreams are haunted by a mysterious voice called Swan, who invents dreamscapes of the past and future. Aiden attempts to fight off these visions, while Richard is drawn deeper into Swan’s narrative. Both are forced to confront their fears of the future, the queerness they’ve buried, and their need to be who they truly are, even if that means becoming monstrous.
