All ages welcome & no experience necessary, apart from basic cycling proficiency (Bikeability level 2 is recommended)
What is it?
Blazing Saddles is a unique outdoor performance celebrating the importance of the bicycle to women & fashion, & the possibilities of travel & freedom.
The show tells its tale in a series of choreographed & improvisational, sequences, with movement & humour & unfolds along a short route.
Participants will learn the structures & movement in each scene, taking a lead in some & acting as a chorus in others; guided throughout by performers.
Why get involved?
It’s an opportunity to develop new skills, boost confidence, work as part of a dedicated team on a unique project, meet new people & have lots of fun.
Previous participants got involved to ‘try something different,’ ‘meet new people,’ ‘do something for their community,‘ & ‘wanted a new challenge.’ Afterwards people said:
‘I met new people, enjoyment, pushing myself, attention, laughter, fond memories & I learned new things.’
‘Increased bike confidence. Enjoyed performing… way better than going to the gym.’
Participants in previous shows have been all ages & abilities, & the majority 78-80% had never been involved in similar projects & 37% rated it 10/10, the ‘best ever’ activity they’d done.
Get involved & be part of an amazing team, creating an exciting event for the community.
