Showcase & Pitch Artists
Evalyn Parry's SPIN
Evalyn Parry's SPINInnovative, award-winning Toronto artist evalyn parry takes her audience 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.

“part theatre, part musical gig, part spoken word poetry & part documentary...whatever it is, it is brilliant.” Toronto Star

Inspired in part by the incredible true tale of 
Annie Londonderry - 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, peeling back layers of history to ultimately reveal a profoundly contemporary and personal heart to her performance.

“this magnetic artist and her winning production team invest the work with such intelligence and playfulness, it’s hard not to be charmed.” (NOW Magazine)

parry’s “co-star” is a vintage bicycle: suspended in a mechanic’s stand on stage and connected to a variety of electronic effects pedals, the bike is played– from fenders to spokes to bells - by percussionist Brad Hart, conjuring an astonishing and unique sonic accompaniment to parry’s songs and monologues. Projections by award-winning designer Beth Kates add a captivating visual layer to SPIN, which sold out the run of its premiere in Toronto in 2011.
