A One-Woman Show Starring the Bicycle as Muse, Musical Instrument, and Agent of Social Change
Innovative, award-winning Toronto artist Evalyn Parry takes her audience on an uncommon theatrical and musical journey in Spin, her tour-de-force performance celebrating the Bicycle as muse, musical instrument, and agent of social change. Inspired in part by the incredible true tale of Annie Londonderry – the first woman to ride around the world on a bicycle in 1894 – Parry spins a web of stories which travel from 19th century women’s emancipation to 21st century consumer culture, peeling back layers of history to ultimately reveal a profoundly contemporary and personal heart to her theme of liberation.
Evalyn Parry’s Spin is presented as part of the PAPAYA at the Bride International Family Series 2015. To learn more, please visit papayalive.org.
