Starring the Bicycle, as muse, musical instrument, and agent of social change, SPIN is inspired by the true story of Annie Londonderry, the first woman to ride around the world on a bicycle in 1894. Through a series of songs played live on a vintage bicycle (by percussionist Brad Hart), award-winning Toronto theatre artist and songwriter Evalyn Parry takes the audience on a musical and theatrical journey about cycling and women’s liberation while spinning a web of stories that span nineteenth-century emancipation all the way to twenty-first-century consumer culture.
We think Toronto Star described it best when they said SPIN is “part theatre, part musical gig, part spoken-word poetry, and part documentary. Whatever it is, it is brilliant.” WE’RE SOLD.
If you want a captivating history lesson along with a stunning musical performance, co-starring a vintage bicycle suspended on stage in a mechanic’s stand and connected to fenders, spokes, and bells (need we go on?), you’ll be blown away by this one-of-a-kind multimedia performance. Get tickets before they’re gone!
