Riding the rhythm on customised tandems, Extant presents a musical theatre performance as never seen or heard before!

Two performers ride and sing on a tandem

Watch a video of the performance. Film produced by Braunarts.

Inspired by the famous musical ‘Gypsy’, Braunarts created a sound design for Extant that was transported upon tandem bikes, along with a cast of riders and performers. Commissioned for The Mayor of London’s Liberty Festival, this new piece presented a pedal partnership spectacular of moving music and song!

There were two performances at the Liberty Festival on Saturday 4 September 2010 in Trafalgar Square.
