About the event
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, lik eall Requardt&Rosenberg’s shows, it delivers the delicate integrity of a deeply intimate experience within a large-scale dance spectacle.
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 Malcolm Rippeth (lighting design).
Crawley Borough Council, Crawley Town Centre BID and Creative Crawley are pleased to host these performances and work alongside Brighton Festival to bring these amazing, bright, innovative companies to the town centre for a great day of entertainment.

Press about the company:
★★★★‘It’s an intriguing and, at times, humorous performance that inventively blends sound, movement and light to deliver a deeply engaging and captivating show’
‘The performers deliver a remarkable feat’
‘interesting juxtaposition between large scale and intimate, that’s both immersive and yet voyeuristic. This contradiction of scale and engagement gives the overall performance a mesmeric yet eerie feeling.’ Reviews Hub
