News from Shaun Parker & Company

Posted: March 20, 2012

Award winning Australian choreographer Shaun Parker in collaboration with London’s C-12 Dance Theatre, present TROLLEYS.

Part dance.  Part ballet.  Part outdoor spectacle.  TROLLEYS is a new 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 highly physical, humorous outdoor performance where high-octane contemporary dance, acrobatics and street dance merge with the extraordinary world of trolleys.

Set to a pounding electro-acoustic score, TROLLEYS will tease, thrill and move its audience. You’ll never go shopping in the same way again.

“Parker always has something up his sleeve” The Times

“C-12 is a company to watch not just for dancing but for interesting, emotive and powerful theatre.” Fringe Review

TROLLEYS is a Without Walls commission.
