Ecce Bicycle

behold the bicycleShakespeare’s birthday is April 23, and so is ArtSpring’s presentation of an eclectic show called SPIN by Toronto songwriter, poet and social commentator Evalyn Parry.

Both an ode to the bicycle and a narrative of early travels by intrepid women, all combined with musical performance on a bicycle as percussion instrument, the show is so hard to describe that we have given up trying to put it into words. A homage to the bicycle as muse (with suitable Shakespearean gestures) is the best Catherine and I have come up with to encourage everyone to come and enjoy a memorable and unusual performance.

The Toronto Star said it all: “Part theatre, part music gig, part spoken word poetry, part documentary: whatever it is, it is brilliant.”
