PanicLab – Swan Lake II: Dark Waters


A dark, humorous portrait of a prince stranded on an island of feathers, forced to confront his loneliness and isolation once happily ever after has expired. In this reluctant spectacle, an estranged ode to the original ballet, performer Jordan Lennie fluctuates between man and creature whose grasp on reality is growing increasingly questionable.


Suitable for ages 16+, contains nudity.
