More Info

Part dance and part outdoor spectacle, Trolleys is a ballet for five supermarket trolleys.

Five shopping trolleys randomly appear in a public space. Two meet and fall in love. One grapples to find a friend. Three others revolt and ignite a dance of anarchy. Trolleys spin, glide and slide in this impressive and humorous outdoor performance where high-octane contemporary dance, acrobatics and street dance merge with a world of trolleys.

Choreographed by Shaun Parker and set to a stunning orchestral score by composer Nick Wales, Trolleys creates a highly physical, extraordinary urban world – in the middle of Festival Park. Discover it nightly at 6pm from Friday 20 to Sunday 22 August.
