See the kingdom of La Mancha by Bicycle, and live to tell the tale!
Don Quixote has spent his whole life reading about the heroic exploits of famous Knights inbooks. Now, with a little help from his reluctant squire Sancho Panza, and you the audience, he’s going to bring those stories to life, whatever the consequences!
Travelling together on bicycles, actors and audiences will experience the colourful and misguided escapades of Don Quixote - self styled Knight of La Mancha. This exciting piece of interactive family theatre involves actors riding custom designed bikes that even a medieval knight would be proud of. As part of the show you too can decorate your cycle, or turn your bike into a horse.
This July an exciting new show is being premièred as part of Exeter’s Ignite Festival. Audiences and performers will take a short promenade bicycle ride from Exeter’s Historic quayside with audiences along the canal cycle route, approximately 2 miles. Then in August, Don Quixote will travel to North Devon where a further series of performances will take place on the Tarka Cycle Trail between Fremington Quay and Instow, a ride of approximately 3 miles.
So bring your own wheels and a sense of adventure !
