The Bicycle Opera Project is thrilled to present the film adaptation of SWEAT, an innovative opera by Juliet Palmer with a libretto by Anna Chatterton. Winner of the Best Narrative Feature at the LA Independent Women Film Awards, this unique production has been re-envisioned for the big (and small) screen. 
Filmed on location in Hamilton and Kingston, Ontario in the summer of 2022, SWEAT tells the story of a group of women working in the garment industry and sets their individual aspirations against the unrelenting demands of global capitalism. The film merges contemporary dance and operatic storytelling with evocative and striking imagery.
