Sorry, you missed this event, SIGN UP to get information on our forthcoming shows

A truck arrives from an unknown location loaded with a mystery shipment. As the sides roll up a strange and unstoppable process is set into motion.

Future Cargo is the latest outdoor work by Frauke Requardt & David Rosenberg. Created with longstanding collaborators, Hannah Clark (set and costume), Ben &Max Ringham (music and sound) and lighting designer Malcolm Rippeth.

Future Cargo is a sci-fi dance show performed in a 40 foot haulage truck and, like all Requardt & Rosenberg’s shows, it delivers the delicate integrity of a deeply intimate experience within a large-scale dance spectacle.

‘Magnificently sly and witty dance theatre...stunning’ – The Stage on DeadClub
