We’re bringing politics to the streets. Not in a ranty, angry, shouty way. In the funnest way we can think of. In a way that will benefit everyone who chooses to get involved: on the party rickshaw. We’ll be roaming around Hull giving people free lifts across the city in exchange for a conversation about what politics means to you. To make sure things don’t get too dry, boring or overwhelming we’ve got music and no agenda. If on 14 October you have lots of shopping, or tired legs or just fancy a dance on the move, we’re the party for you.
The party rickshaw is an outdoor performance that is running adjacent to the making of the theatre piece None Of The Above. A show about how we do politics without being stone-faced serious about the serious shit: trying to figure out what’s going on, how we got to this point and where we go from here. None Of The Above is co-commissioned by Northern Stage, The Albany, Camden People’s Theatre, Unity Theatre and ARC Stockton. It is written and performed by Luca Rutherford, directed by Alex Swift, and designed by Bethany Wells.
Luca Rutherford is a writer and performer based in Newcastle and an Associate Artist of ARC Stockton.
She believes in making art accessible and theatre that is non-exclusive in form and content. Luca has nationally toured her solo show Learning How To Die, directed by Iain Bloomfield and script advise from Chris Thorpe. She is currently working with Alex Swift and Seiriol Davies on a new children’s show; is associate dramaturg on Adam Pownall’s GBS project; with Unlimited Theatre as an engagement practitioner; and performing with Action Transport Theatre and Unity Theatre’s production of Little Red and The Big Bad Wolf.
