About

Setting: stage is black and a lone cyclist wearing full lycra and helmet walks across the stage. Then he or she mounts a racing bike on a trainer which is attached to an electric generator. The house and stage lights and sound rise and fall as he/she pedals. The faster and more intensely he/she rides, the brighter the lights and sound become. There are three similar bikes located on stage, in a row, with the center bike being in the center of the stage. Stage right is a typical Pub facade. Stage left a conference room table.

There are large screens located behind each bike, and a Bolex-Paillard 18-5-L Super 8 film projector (or digital projectors) located between each cyclist and each screen. It may become more practical to do this on a computer, with three split screens, which join up when the bikes are all riding together, and then therefore sharing the same background such as through Hyde Park. Ideally, this would be Super 8 film, so that actors have to be aware of the timing of their lines and pedal according to the screen and motion behind them, thus leaving room for uncertainty to occur.

The Chaotic Science Bicycle Network Planning is a stakeholder performance tool where the public can “feed” the actors real issues – like the Drew Carey improve comedy show, “Whose Line is it Anyway”

The audience are given slips of paper just prior to the beginning of the performance. The paper is divided into three sections corresponding to the three Acts of Play and therefore creates a ‘choose your own adventure style’ performance.
Act I – 20 minutesSet in Medieval Times London actors wear Renaissance clothing, Transport Planner as loyal to the King and Army; while bicycle advocates loyal to the Pope / Clergy
Act II – 20 minutesSet in a warren of industrious and cute Rabbits along the River Wandle, think Watership Down and Beatrix Potter – actors are in animal costumes; Mr. Mole is a tunnel digger, Rats of Nimh - building rat runs etc…
Act II – 20 minutes

Set in WWI London 1920’s / 30’s era – bike actors are in vintage clothing, air raid sirens, action is fast and language dramatic, overly romantic etc.

The stage play is an incomplete work, but it is intended to be complete by Christmas 2012, with a theatrical production run in May 2013 to correspond with San Luis Obispo, CA Bike month.

Crowd source money is intended to cover the cost of initial production, filming street scenes on location around San Luis Obsipo, CA - technical production, electric generators, projectors, costumes etc...

Auditions for actors and stage crew will sought in San Luis Obispo, CA Jan. 1st 2013
