Future Cargo

Fri 1 Jul–Sat 2 Jul

Appetite and The Place present
Requardt & Rosenberg’s
Future Cargo

There are reports of fireballs in the area. Power surges and blackouts and electromagnetic waves. The message boards are filling up with unexplained visions of ‘gods’ and lights. A mystery shipment arrives in Newcastle Town Centre from an unknown location.

As the side rolls up on a 40ft haulage truck, an alien machine is revealed and a strange and unstoppable process begins. A compelling invitation to make contact evolves. Before it’s too late to walk away, the driver must consider their options…
Future Cargo is an homage to a past where alien sightings were abundant, and a future where contact seems all too possible.

This latest outdoor show by Frauke Requardt & David Rosenberg combines large-scale spectacle with surprising intimacy in a sci-fi dance phenomenon performed under the stars. Audiences wear headphones to connect them to the strange world inside the truck.

Created with longstanding collaborators, Hannah Clark (set and costume), Ben & Max Ringham (music and sound) and Malcolm Rippeth (lighting design).
