Emmeline and Lucy are sisters. They go down, down, reaching a place where they want to be. They eat their tomato and cheese sandwiches. They play in the abandoned cemetery in their home of Hallow County. It's good when it's good. 

Adapted from the comic art novel by Juliacks, SWELL is an ongoing project that explores the memory-shifting and kaleidoscopic journey of grief, as Emmeline confronts her fears, dreams, and imagination. 

Following its March 2012 premiere at Culture Project's Women Center Stage Festival in Manhattan, and its run at the Atomic Centre residency by a new team of New York-, Lyon- and Winnipeg-based artists, SWELL is reincarnated for the Comic Book Theater Festival in a new version that draws from its storied past to reenact moments in Emmeline's stream of recollections.
