A car arrives in a hidden wasteland in which a young couple, completely oblivious to anything other than themselves, kiss, fumble, argue, fondle, listen to music, and plan a world for each other. They joke, love, break up, get back together, kiss more, love more, discover and disregard their differences and make promises they can’t possibly understand. Their whole lives are stretched out before them and they are fireproof.

And all the time the dark world turns around them.

Motor Show is a large-scale outdoor dance performance; a wild and fragile spectacle in an acre of forgotten land with the city skyline as a backdrop. The audience wears headphones which transport them aurally to the intimate interiors of the cars that they can see approaching from the distance.

This is the strange new world of Requardt & Rosenberg – the creators of Electric Hotel (2010 Norfolk & Norwich Festival).

Commissioned by LIFT (London International Festival of Theatre), Brighton Festival and Norfolk & Norwich Festival.
