Spin — A Workshop Presentation8pm, The Chamber, PWYCWritten and Performed by Evalyn Parry, with Anna Friz and Brad HartA musical, poetic and theatrical investigation of the Bicycle as muse, musical instrument, and instrument of social change. Taking inspiration from a series of amazing-but-little-known cycling ladies from history (Annie Londonderry, the first woman to ride around the world in 1895! Amelia Bloomer, 19th century sufferagette, advocate of dress reform, and name sake of bloomers!), Parry spins a story that encompasses proto-feminism, the invention, evolution and marketing of the bicycle, Toronto’s most notorious bike thief, and a life-changing accident.
