Future Cargo

Category: Show Related artist: Requardt & Rosenberg

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 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.

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
