Agile Rascal is a theatre company that tours original plays on bicycles.
Our mission is to make innovative, new theater accessible, promote cycling as a viable means of transportation, inspire reverence for our natural landscape and to foster creative connections between artists, activists and cyclists.
The Art: Devising a play collectively democratizes the creative process and brings multiple voices into one shared story.
The Audience: Making a performance for a specific region means learning new culture and history, and recognizes that the ways in which communities are affected by climate change is specific and varies.
The Method: Traveling on bicycles reduces the carbon footprint of arts touring. It disrupts life-as-usual by slowing down, and creates more opportunities for happenstance meetings and curiosity on the road. It promotes altruism and hospitality by calling on the local community for survival on the road: water, bathrooms and accommodations.
