A truck arrives from an unknown location loaded with a mystery shipment. As the sides roll up a strange and unstoppable process is set into motion…
Future Cargo is the latest outdoor work by The Place Affiliate Artist Frauke Requardt and co-conspirator David Rosenberg, and has been created with longstanding collaborators, Hannah Clark , Ben & Max Ringham and lighting designer Malcolm Rippeth.
It is a sci-fi dance show performed in a 40-foot haulage truck and, like all Requardt & Rosenberg’s shows, it delivers the delicate integrity of a deeply intimate experience within a large-scale dance spectacle.
Originally due to tour in 2020, the show has been reworked to make it Covid safe for 2021 audiences and its performers. The first performances will be at Norfolk & Norwich Festival on 20 May 2021.
Speaking about the tour, Frauke & David say
“We are delighted to finally get Future Cargo out on the road. This sci-fi movie inspired production of ours, with its binaural sound and built-in travelator, is a real feast for the senses and we cannot wait to share it with the universe.”
The Lowry, Salford 18 – 20 JUN 2021
