Cycle through the streets, searching for the perfect place to hide a secret. Ride on and the voices of strangers will draw you to new and unknown places

Rider Spoke invites you on a ride guided by a smartphone app with a narrator and a delicate score by Blanket. Think about the people in your life while you search for hiding places. Record messages and share them with strangers you will never meet. To cycle alone, in the evening, with no particular destination offers a rare freedom.  

Rider Spoke premiered with a sold-out season at the Barbican in London and has since been shown in 20 cities worldwide. 

Based in Brighton, Blast Theory create internationally celebrated experiences that explore how we connect with strangers and how technology shapes society.

‘A gloriously enlivening piece of theatre ...the show’s greatest gift is that it manages to embrace the remorseless rush of the City while insisting on the individual’s ability to pierce it with quiet reflection.’ Metro
