This event sounds like FABULOUS FUN!
An old-fashioned bicycle
hooked up to modern-day effect pedals
meets the wit of wordsmith in
a musical, poetic and theatrical investigation of
as muse, musical instrument, and instrument of social change
written and performed by Evalyn Parry
with Brad Hart on the bicycle, and Anna Friz on the pedals
Coming to the London Music Club for one night only, MAY 19th, 2010, SPIN is an inventive blending of music, theatre and technology in a performance that welds together social history, social commentary and sonic experiment.
Award-winning Toronto songwriter and spoken word artist Evalyn Parry crafts a tale that travels from 19th century feminism to the end of oil – from Annie Londonderry, the first woman to ride around the world in 1895, to Igor Kenk, Toronto’s most notorious bicycle thief – in pursuit of two-wheeled freedom in a four-wheeled world.

EDIT – UPDATE: This was FUN. Terrific history about folks like Amelia Bloomer and Annie Kopchovsky, but also told so well by Evalyn and fellow performers. Opening act Coco Love Alcorn has some very fun songs as well. So, Evalyn and Coco both get thumbs up, but Evalyns work to bring this bicycle and womans history to the stage is unique. Tks.
