Future Cargo by Requardt & Rosenberg

A truck arrives from a distant planet loaded with a  mystery shipment. AT LAST! What all those movies promised.

Future Cargo is a contemporary sci-fi dance show; a strange outdoor spectacle for a headphone-wearing audience.  Within a shipping container on a flatbed truck, we reveal a parallel universe, that seems both strange and familiar.

This is Requardt & Rosenberg’s fourth outdoor show. Together they create performance away from traditional auditoriums, making highly visible, unique events with a distinctive format, with past works including Electric Hotel & Motor Show.

 ‘We envisage creating an impossible internal space that defies the preconception of the viewer. We want to invite an audience into a world they never thought possible’  - Frauke Requardt & David Rosenberg

★★★★★  ‘Mindblowingly weird immersive dance theatre  Timeout on Deadclub, 2017

★★★★  One of the most enjoyably baffling productions Ive seen in ages – Judith Mackerel, The Guardian on DeadClub™

 [An] ambitious, innovate spectacle’ – Financial Times on The Roof

Here is a clip from rehearsals in a container earlier this year
