Sink or Swim (Zwemmen of Verzuipen)
Hilal - ages 13+
In the strange atmosphere of an empty, abandoned swimming pool, friends Yinka and Glenn come across another group of boys. Through dance, the boys challenge the newcomers to increasingly difficult feats. A fascinating and imaginative exploration of the alluring but sometimes dangerous dynamics of group behaviour, ‘Sink or Swim’ takes a look at what happens to friendship and self-worth when they come up against the desire to fit in with the pack.
