The story is set in the present day. Instead of magic, Rothbart uses drugs to gain power over his surroundings. The swans are prostitutes and completely dependent on Rothbart's protection and the heroin he provides them with. At the centre of the struggle between good and evil is the desire for drugs and love. Can love break the spell, just like in the original story?
The dancers, 10 in total, have appeared in previous Bounce productions or were selected by audition.
