Strictly Cycling, cycle ballet: Portobello High Street, 11am, 1st September 2013
Strictly Cycling is an exciting new ‘cycle-about’ show combining improvisation, choreography and visual performance. The performance plays with the everyday events and experiences of riding a bike, adding a hint of the surreal and comical, to change the way you think about cycling and your city spaces.
Strictly Cycling is a strolling / cycling, promenade-style performance inspired by the flash mob phenomenon.
The performance will last about 30minutes. Then the company will cycle along the promenade to Leith links, with as many cycle mob followers as feel like joining them! So come to the performance outside the Town Hall at 11am and then join in for as much of the cycle ride along the Prom and then the cycle track to the Mela at Leith Links as you feel like.
Not so much Car Free Day as Bike Full Day!!
