Award winning Australian choreographer Shaun Parker in collaboration with London's  C-12 Dance Theatre, present TROLLEYS. Music by Nick Wales.

Part dance.  Part ballet.  Part outdoor spectacle.  TROLLEYS is a new ballet for five supermarket trolleys.  Five shopping trolleys randomly appear in a public space. Two meet and fall in love. One grapples to find a friend. Three others revolt and ignite a dance of anarchy.

Trolleys spin, glide and slide in this highly physical, humorous outdoor performance where high-octane contemporary dance, acrobatics and street dance merge with the extraordinary world of trolleys.

Set to a pounding electro-acoustic score, TROLLEYS will tease, thrill and move its audience. You'll never go shopping in the same way again.
