09.03.10 Performer, Leicester - Metro-Boulot-Dodo
METRO-BOULOT-DODO are looking for dynamic performers for their latest project ‘Whispers From a
Rickshaw’ which will tour to a variety of street arts festivals across the UK.
Whispers From a Rickshaw is a mobile, cycle powered rickshaw experience driven by a performer. The performer will greet audience members and start off the experience with a brief monologue and playing a short game of choice and chance with them to determine what track they listen to as they are cycled
on a pre-set route for 5 minutes. After each cycle tour, the performer will conclude the experience with another short monologue and then be ready to greet the next audience members. At each event the rickshaw will run continuously.
“Climb aboard the colourful chinese rickshaw and take a 5 minute ride whilst you play a game of choice and chance, secret pockets hide mystery objects that will lead you to your story. Don the headphones, and immerse yourself in a unique tale that weaves together journeys with destiny. Classical Chinese music, low-fi electronica, new technology and storytelling all intermingle to create a philosophical ride.” Metro-boulot-dodo are one of the UK's leading arts organisations and “Whispers From a Rickshaw” is an intimate experience that asks the essential question: Where are you going?
