Five to ten performers in bright yellow cycle or wheel their bikes. They take over the streets creating epic human/bike sculptures; parking their bikes in the hands of passers-by & battling in slo-motion races, celebrating cycling, life & yellowness.
Strictly Cycling is part choreographed and part improvised to play in close contact with audiences, interacting with them & any features around performance locations. It is a roving performance interspersed with short, static vignettes, so can be seen by large numbers, move around a performance space, or between sites.
The show is high impact, with visually striking costumes and a mobile soundscape. It’s exciting, comic, self-contained and able to go anywhere – from shopping centres and High Street, to parks and rural locations – and, waterproof as well!
