Givens Swims

The last in a trilogy of pool performances featuring City of Austin Aquatic staff and East Austin residents.

Givens Swims will feature the everyday movement of the people who maintain and swim at the pool. From neighborhood teens to community elders, the story of Givens Pool will be told by the people who have long lived, worked, and played around this historic place. In collaboration with this summer’s performances, visual artists Cindy Elizabeth and Ernesto Hernandez are creating temporary installations at Givens Pool.

Directed by: Allison Orr and Krissie Marty

Music by: Graham
