Award winning Australian choreographer Shaun Parker in collaboration with London’s C-12 Dance Theatre, present TROLLEYS. Music by Nick Wales.
Part dance. Part ballet. Part outdoor spectacle. TROLLEYS is a new ballet for five supermarket trolleys. Five shopping trolleys randomly appear in a public space. Two meet and fall in love. One grapples to find a friend. Three others revolt and ignite a dance of anarchy.
Trolleys spin, glide and slide in this highly physical, humorous outdoor performance where high-octane contemporary dance, acrobatics and street dance merge with the extraordinary world of trolleys.
Set to a pounding electro-acoustic score, TROLLEYS will tease, thrill and move its audience. You’ll never go shopping in the same way again.
