Trolleys

1 Jan 2012

A new street ballet for five supermarket trolleys… Five shopping trolleys randomly appear in a public space. Two meet and fall in love. One grapples to find a friend. Three others revolt and ignite a dance of anarchy.

Part street dance, part ballet, part acrobatic spectacle, Trolleys is a high-octane, highly physical and humorous outdoor performance – on wheels! As the trolleys spin, glide and slide to a pounding electroacoustic score, this exhilarating production puts a whole new perspective on our shopping experience. Trolleys is created by award-winning Australian choreographer Shaun Parker (Happy As Larry) in collaboration with London’s C-12 Dance Theatre.
