The Autumn leg of Earthfall‘s At Swim Two Boys tour is coming to a close.
The Tour will begin again in the Spring of 2012.
In the meantime you can do your bit for a good cause. As you may or may not know the At Swim Two Boys production is staged entirely in water and it’s estimated that each show will use over 1000 litres of water.
The Earthfall “Water Supporter” campaign invites you to support the performance and our participation programme, whilst off-setting the commercial cost of the water, contributing this cost to the charity Water Aid.
