Evalyn Parry takes her audience on an uncommon theatrical and musical journey in SPIN, celebrating the Bicycle as muse, musical instrument and agent of social change. Inspired by the 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. Parry’s “co-star” is a vintage bicycle: suspended in a mechanic’s stand on stage. The bike is played from fenders to spokes to bells by percussionist Brad Hart, conjuring a unique accompaniment to Parry’s songs and monologues.
