A truck arrives in Silvertown from an unknown location loaded with a mystery shipment. As the sides roll up, a strange and unstoppable process is set into motion. This contemporary sci-fi dance show reveals a world where the normal rules don’t apply. Created in the Royal Docks by the makers of Motor Show, (GDIF 2012) this extraordinary new outdoor production, takes audiences into a surreal visual and aural experience enhanced with 360 sound on personal headsets.

REQUARDT&ROSENBERG combine both the spectacle of large scale dance performances and the delicate integrity and intimacy of the audience experience through binaural sound.
