BIKE PLAY 5: BIKE ODYSSEY
Irving Park, NE 7th Ave and Fargo St, Portland Take Trimet (North Side- Next to the Basketball Courts)
6:30pm, The Show/Ride Leaves at 7pm, June 20 – 23
Bike Play returns!
Answer the call to adventure as Bike Odyssey takes you on an epic journey through a land of gods, monsters, and heroically dexterous bike mechanics. The fifth installment of the Working Theatre Collective’s road-cloggingly-popular, pedal-powered-quest-theatrical-spectacular resurrects the gods of old for one more ride. You will cycle through worlds (and underworlds!) forbidden to mere mortals, alongside our band of cyclo-nauts. Don’t forget your bike!
You are encouraged to come dressed in the guise of your favorite bike goddess, demigod, or titan.

It’s been an amazing four years, but it’s time for us to split up for a bit.
Nate and Eva are off to graduate school (both for playwriting, Nate at Savannah College of Art and Design, Eva as part of the Michener Program at University of Austin, Texas. Which is where Noah is also going to school).
Ashley and Noelle are going to continue to live and work in Portland. Ashley has been commissioned by Action/Adventure to create a devised piece for their 2012/2013 season. Noelle will perform in it (and is auditioning for other things around town). If you’re so inclined, you can find out what Ashley is up to here.
We’ll be back for Bike Project 5.0. It’s too good to pass up.
nice little write up/interview with co-founder Ashley Hollingshead by Emily Stevens.

Set in the distant present, Invasion of the Bicycle Snatchers transports you to a time when men were beautiful and women were strong. The fourth installment of the Working Theatre Collectives wildly popular Pedalpalooza ride, re-imagines 1950’s science fiction through a Portland inspired lense, complete with alien invasions, government conspiracies and (gasp!) sentient cycles. Pedal down the side streets of Stumptown as this shocking sci-fi thriller unfolds. Audiences will ride to, through, and alongside this summer-evening adventure as it tells it’s story across a series of locations.
Don’t forget your helmet!
Audience encouraged to grab their best 50’s garb to get in the mood.
the ride will last about two hours and is of low/medium difficulty.
Created and performed by:
TJ Acena, Cristina Cano, Noelle Eaton, Nicholas Fenster, Alice Hodge, Ashley Hollingshead, Matthew Hopkins, John Iten, Kaician Kitko, Eva Suter, Breanne Thornton, Ian Goodrich
thank you to everyone who came out and saw and experienced SOMETHING EPIC/EVERYDAY. It was an absolutely amazing piece to be a part of. sometimes when you’re working on a project you know you’re on to something special, but the feedback we received — both from individual patrons and in reviews — was so overwhelming in its kindness and generosity. it’s really amazing to have been a part of something that meant a lot of things to a lot of people.
but…now it is over. and on to other things.
like this year’s bike project!
Invasion of the Bicycle Snatchers
it’s gonna be rad.
