A truck arrives from an unknown location loaded with a mystery shipment. As the sides roll up a strange and unstoppable process is set into motion.
Future Cargo is a sci-fi dance show performed in a 40-foot haulage truck and, like all Requardt & Rosenberg’s shows, it delivers the delicate integrity of a deeply intimate experience within a large-scale dance spectacle.
Future Cargo will be performed at Guildhall Square, Southampton (SO14 7DU) on Thursday 15th, Friday 16th and Saturday 17th July 2021. The show will begin at 8pm and runs for approximately 45 minutes. The performances will run in line with current government guidelines, including Hands, Face, Space and Fresh Air.
Future Cargo is the latest outdoor work by Frauke Requardt & David Rosenberg. Created with longstanding collaborators, Hannah Clark (set and costume), Ben &Max Ringham (music and sound) and lighting designer Malcolm Rippeth.
This is Requardt & Rosenberg’s fourth outdoor show. Together they create performance away from traditional auditoriums, making highly visible, unique events with a distinctive format.
