The Lowry

A sci-fi dance performed in a haulage truck will be the Lowry theatre’s first outdoor show later this month.

Future Cargo is the latest work by Frauke Requardt & David Rosenberg and is produced by The Place.

Dancers will emerge from a 40-foot haulage truck on to the Lowry Plaza to perform a large-scale yet intimate dance spectacle.

The show tells the story of a truck which arrives from an unknown location loaded with a mystery shipment and as the sides roll up a strange and unstoppable process is set into motion.

Many people will be involved in the production, with Hannah Clark as a designer, Malcolm Rippeth for lighting design, Ben and Max Ringham will take care of the sound design and composition, Valentina Formenti as dance captain and Jack Baker as a musician.

Speaking about the tour, Frauke Requardt & David Rosenberg said: “We are delighted to finally get Future Cargo out on the road.

“This sci-fi movie-inspired production of ours, with its binaural sound and built-in travelator, is a real feast for the senses and we cannot wait to share it with the universe.”

Tickets are available to purchase on The Lowry’s website for £10 each.

Dates and time available:
Saturday 19 June at 6 pm
Saturday 19 June at 8 pm
Sunday 20 June at 8 pm

The show will run outside for approx. 50 minutes and viewers can enjoy a break at the Lowry’s Pier 8 bar during the interval.

The Lowry is located in MediaCityUK and here is a video of where you can find a video it.
