SPIN Main Stage: July 4
Created By and Starring Evalyn Parry
SPIN is award-winning Toronto artist Evalyn Parry’s tour-de-force, an imaginative, innovative performance celebrating the bicycle as a muse, a musical instrument and agent of social change. This show is inspired, in part, by the true and incredible tale of Annie Londonderry – the first woman to ride around the world on a bicycle in 1894. Parry’s web of stories travel from 19th century women’s emancipation to our 21st century consumer culture. She peels back layers of history to reveal a profoundly contemporary and personal heart to her theme of liberation.
A reception will follow SPIN at which you will have a chance to meet performers from all of our summer shows.
