Sleepwalk Collective

Part of Going Global

Our building is now temporarily closed to the public and performances in the Going Global season are no longer going ahead. 

We will open our doors again as soon as it is safe to do so. In the meantime, we're finding ways to support the incredible artists and communities that work with us. We're confident that by working together, we'll come out of this  stronger and more connected than ever.

This psychedelic, multilingual new show is Sleepwalk Collective’s most ambitious work to date.

Wrestling fearlessly with the demons of the early 21st century – rampant capitalism, toxic masculinity, internet boredom – Swimming Pools is about how we might live together in the blinding brightness of the future.

Across a series of imagined swimming pools, arranged like the ascending levels of a retro videogame, a sequence of intimate, confessional monologues are whispered out by four women onstage.

Sleepwalk Collective is the award-winning creator of Amusements, Karaoke, Domestica and  Kourtney Kardashian.

Running Time: 60 mins
Age Guidance: 14+

A Teatro de La Abadía co-production. Supported by Battersea Arts Centre, Graner Creation Centre for Dance and Live Art Barcelona, Shift Key/Creative Europe, and the Basque Government.


'Few theatre-makers capture the vertiginous thrill and terror of contemporary existence as captivatingly as Sleepwalk Collective’
The Guardian

Latecomers will be permitted – this might be at specific points in the performance agreed with the artists. It does not mean that light and sound effects have been changed.
