A timeless musical celebration of the bicycle, Evalyn Parry’s SPIN is an innovative production that has toured the continent for over a decade. Inspired in part by the incredible true story of Annie Londonderry, the first woman to ride around the world on a bicycle in 1895, SPIN travels from nineteenth century women’s emancipation to the present day, forging unexpected links across time and history. A vintage bicycle, hooked up to simple electronics and suspended in a mechanic’s stand, becomes a percussion instrument: played from fenders to spokes to sprung vinyl seat, from whirling pedals to bells, percussionist Brad Hart creates a captivating sonic accompaniment to Parry’s evocative songs and stories.

Whimsical, moving, illuminating, celebratory, inventive: SPIN is a show for anyone who loves to ride a bike, or anyone who has ever yearned for personal or collective liberation. And if you don’t already ride a bike, be warned: you may leave the show wanting to give it a try.

For this outdoor, concert version of SPIN at Guild Theatre Festival, Parry and Hart are accompanied by a string trio led by violinist Kathleen Kajioka, with string arrangements by composer/songwriter Michael Holt. In lieu of the show's original video projections, SPIN's backdrop will be the glorious Greek Theatre.
