SPIN by Evalyn Perry (OutSpoke Productions, Toronto)
"Part theatre, part music gig, part spoken word poetry, part documentary: whatever it is, it is brilliant." Toronto Star
"SPIN makes something beautiful out of taking your life into your own hands." Globe & Mail
"...a show with as much heart as it possesses design and brains." Calgary Herald
Spinning a web of stories that travel from 19th century women's emancipation to 21st century consumer culture, SPIN is inspired by the incredible true tale of Annie Londonderry, the first woman to ride around the world on a bicycle in 1895. One part documentary and another part musical activism, Parry cleverly peels back layers of history to reveal a very contemporary heart to her theme of liberation.
