TROLLEYS (New South Wales , Australia)
2 Nov 2020 - 17 Dec 2021
Winner of the Argus Angel Award (Brighton Festival, UK) - TROLLEYS is twenty-minute outdoor dance theatre work utilising five supermarket trolleys and five exceptional dance and physical theatre artists. Choreographed by Shaun Parker and set to a stunning orchestral score by composer Nick Wales, (Sydney Symphony, Sydney Dance Company, Sarah Blasko, SBS, ABC), the work creates a highly physical, extraordinary urban world incorporating high-octane contemporary dance, acrobatics, street dance, parkour and seemingly ordinary everyday objects – the trolleys.
TROLLEYS had its premiere in the 2012 London Cultural Olympiad, and has since toured throughout the United Kingdom, Spain, Belgium, France, The Netherlands, Egypt, Malaysia and New Zealand to over 40,000 spectators. It made its Australian debut at Perth’s Awesome Festival followed by a three week season in Sydney’s Art & About Festival.
“Set to a pulsating score, it was heart warming and heartbreaking at the same time. This was art accessible for the masses.” The Argus, Brighton ★★★★★
