UK Premiere: New Commission
Milton Keynes-based theatre company Dancing Brick perform Spinning – a moving and humorous tale about a young woman who sees a man at a traffic light.
Before they have the chance to speak the lights turn green and he is gone. Enraptured, she pedals on and on in earnest search, travelling over mountains and under seas, up to the moon and back down to earth until at last, and having cycled around the world, she arrives back where she started . . .
Created in collaboration with the world-famous illustrator Serge Seidlitz, Spinning is a live cartoon - a boldly visual, highly inventive trompe l’oeil that uses whirring mechanics, contemporary puppetry and striking illustrations to tell this bitter-sweet love story.
Spinning is a brand new piece, specially commissioned by IF, and featuring Valentina Ceschi and Thomas Eccleshare.
