CARSICK transposes extraordinary testimonies from Taxi drivers into a innovative physical theatre performance.
Sam lives in a collision of reality and dream. Working as a taxi driver, he invites you to take a seat in his car and embark on a journey. You will witness the world as he sees it and his experiences in a chaotic city.
The narrative is composed with the combination of acting, dance, masks, singing, original music, text in different languages and recorded testimonies from taxi drivers.
Carsick is a work - in - progress, showcased at the Pleasance Theatre in 2016.
This performance was developed with support from iRide London, Forth Monkey, New Diorama and Pleasance Theatre.
