Requardt & Rosenberg's Future Cargo - On Tour

Dates: Spring - Summer 2022

The Place presents Requardt & Rosenberg's Future Cargo on tour:

There are reports of fireballs in the area. Power surges and blackouts and electromagnetic waves. The message boards are filling up with unexplained visions of ‘gods’ and lights. A mystery shipment arrives from an unknown location.

As the side rolls up on a 40ft haulage truck, an alien machine is revealed and a strange and unstoppable process begins. A compelling invitation to make contact evolves. Before it’s too late to walk away, the driver must consider their options...

★★★★ ‘An intriguing and humorous performance that inventively blends sound, movement and light to deliver a deeply engaging and captivating show’ Reviews Hub 

Future Cargo is an homage to a past where alien sightings were abundant, and a future where contact seems all too possible.

This latest outdoor show by Frauke Requardt & David Rosenberg combines large-scale spectacle with surprising intimacy in a sci-fi dance phenomenon performed under the stars. Audiences wear headphones to connect them to the strange world inside the truck.

Created with longstanding collaborators, Hannah Clark (set and costume), Ben & Max Ringham (music and sound) and Malcolm Rippeth (lighting design).

Suitable for all ages.
Running Time: 50min
