Assemble Theatre, Indoors Too Much and Conor A. 

Learning To Swim On An Ironing Board

Monday, 8 June, 2020
Matcham Auditorium
Learning To Swim On An Ironing Board
This event is general admission, seats are unallocated.

‘Between not getting better, and getting better at not getting better, stories are needed'.

Learning To Swim On An Ironing Board is a story about shopping centres, getting better at not getting better and therapeutic eavesdropping; not a widely used therapeutic tool, but what you can expect when your therapist's business card reads `Terry the Therapist'. It's about how all of this helped Conor change how he relates to the world.

Conor isn't what you expect when you think of the word storyteller. Conversational, poetic, explosive, accessible and just a little bit odd. You can expect a mix of storytelling, comedy, video, puppetry and intimate conversations.
