Evalyn Parry's SPIN

September 26, 2014 | 8:00pm to 10:00pm

Friday September 26th at 8:00 pm - The Capitol Season Series presents Evalyn Parry's SPIN. Wanna Ride your Bicycle around the World? Join us and experience the innovative, award-winning Toronto artist Evalyn Parry who will take you on an uncommon theatrical and musical journey in SPIN, her tour-de-force performance celebrating the Bicycle as muse, musical instrument and agent of social change.

 
Inspired in part by the incredible true tale of Annie "Londonderry" Cohen Kopchovsky (1870–1947) – the first woman to ride around the world on a bicycle in 1894 – Parry spins a web of stories which travel from 19th century women’s emancipation to 21st century consumer culture. One part documentary and another part musical activism, Parry cleverly peels back layers of history to ultimately reveal a profoundly heart to her theme of liberation.
