GHOST RIDE OR THE PLAY THAT BLOWS AWAY
PHILADELPHIA 2022 - 2024

'GHOST RIDE or the play that blows away' is an immersive performance  that puts the audience on bicycles, following a food delivery worker on the day they are killed by vehicular violence, and continues into the afterlife with them. The piece is a love song to the bicycle that addresses issues of bicycle safety and transportation justice, as well as being a meditation on life and loss.
 

 The play will be staged on a 3 mile ride along a protected bike lane on MLK Drive in Philadelphia. Audiences will pedal alongside the protagonist as the narrative unfolds on bike and at stops along the path.

STAGED READING ON BIKES 

 

On August 27th, 2023, approximately 80 audience members pedaled alongside performers for a first glimpse of this Work-in-Progress.

 

The reading  was an immensely helpful part of the play's development process.   It gave us an opportunity to test how to move the actors and audience smoothly through space on bicycles, to hear what was and wasn't working in the script, hand to to solicit feedback from audience members for future productions.
