In the science fiction of Future Cargo, a truck arrives from a distant planet and contains everything required to start over. Within a shipping container, a parallel universe is created where the laws that govern our world do not apply. We peel back the side, using binaural headphones you’ll be invited to look and listen in to a world that is 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.
‘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
