‘Wheel See’ is a highly visual pop-up dance performance in which a group of dancers gather together to share the beauty and power of dance practice. The dancers will form a flock that will travel through Inverclyde on bikes on bikes, animate public spaces and gently energise the streets. The wheels are the dancers’ wings and help them to swiftly congregate and disperse. Celebrating cycling as a form of sustainability and freedom.
Directed and designed by Aya Kobayashi and Monika Smekot, Wheel See project emerged from the community of regular professional dance class in Glasgow supported by The Work Room and Barowland Ballet. The dancers will bring the joy of connectivity, rigorous physical expressions and sense of openness and demonstrate the power and volume of moving bodies in the urban spaces.
Originally supported by Tramway Beyond Walls Commission, Glasgow Life and The Work Room.
