An epic 2018 summer season!
Both Strictly Cycling & Blazing Saddles toured to some amazing festivals & events across the UK in 2018.  In addition, we received two commissions for Blazing Saddles, from Lakes Alive & Milton Keynes Pedalling Cultures, to build on & develop new structures, choreography & costumes to engage local participants & their bicycles.

 

 

 


2017 was a fantastic year!
Strictly Cycling toured to 15 locations, including a fabulous 10 performer show in Trafalgar Sq. We ran an all ability workshop with performance in Bradford & performed to an estimated audience of over 16,000 people. & Blazing Saddles was redeveloped for touring, following a commission from Wandsworth Arts Fringe.

A special year, with the creation of a new show Blazing Saddles, commissioned by Southwark Council; & two special commissions:  FireSpring for Cyclopark & a short piece for the opening of the UCI road track cycling championships at the London Velodrome.

Back in 2015
Strictly Cycling continued to tour in 2015.  An improvisational, visual performance & ‘cycle-about’ choreography, inspired by flash mobs, surrealism, everyday cycling experiences and the great British weather!

Four performers stand in a line in the Tour de France stage finish line, Bristol. Three performers look away and one smiles to the camera with two thumbs up. Performers wear bright yellow helmets, goggles and cycling capes
