IATI Theater presents a story of relationship between a man and a woman who are avoiding what they must do: talk about themselves and each other. Presented in Spanish with English supertitles.

A man and a woman meet in a playground. What might seem like a chance meeting soon becomes fragmented dialogue of two people who know one another too well and who fear getting hurt. So they talk about everything and nothing in particular, anything to avoid talking about themselves or each other. 'Los Columpios' is an absurdist tragicomedy that delves into romantic relationships from a different perspective.

Teatruras Y Algo Mas

[This excerpt has been translated from Spanish]: "'Swings' breaks into the world drama with quite a splash. The play carries the viewer into the most remote places of consciousness...The direction of Julian J. Mesri could not be more perfect for a work that required so much depth and delicacy. What caught the audience's attention was the incorporation of technology." Full Review
