A visually stunning & joyful, outdoor contemporary dance, cycle-about celebrating women & cycling & fashion; a wry look at pink evolving cultural taboos, modern women & bikes, which builds in a series of sequences.
The show is part choreographed, part improvised, & structured to facilitate local participation.
Choreographic sequences use humour & movement derived from the costumes, issues & ideas around women cycling through history to the present day.
The performance is highly flexible in a wide variety of spaces. It can move around one location, or take place across a number of sites with short, bike rides in between.
The original show was designed across seven sites along a 7km route around Dulwich Village, to encourage & support women to ride on the roads. This offered options for riding the entire route or short distances between local sites of interest, a sociable & relaxed pace, & a picnic.
