Join theatre-maker Michael Pinchbeck for Cyclical, a performance that sees him cycle on an exercise bike in his home for 6 hours, the time that it would take to get from Nottingham (where he spent lockdown) to Manchester (where he works).
Reminisce about bike rides, share stories of bikes and discuss the cyclical nature of working from home.
For the duration of his performative journey, audience members will be invited to join Michael digitally via Zoom for 15 minutes at a time. Cycling a distance of approximately 85 km, audiences who accompany Michael will be encouraged to reminisce about bike rides, share stories of bikes and discuss the cyclical nature of working from home.
This is a live durational one-to-one performance where neither audience nor performer needs to travel anywhere. Just log on from home and spend 15 minutes remembering your biking memories, the first time you first learned to ride or your experiences of teaching others to ride a bike. You can chat to Michael from your living room sofa or cycle along with him on your own exercise bike.

To take part, book a slot at one of the available times and you’ll be sent a Zoom link. You can then join Michael at your allocated time for a private 15-minute conversation. Audiences will also be able to track Michael’s progress over the 6 hours via a separate camera too.
Cyclical is being performed as part of Homemakers, an online festival by HOME Manchester. Easily accessible – on a pay-what-you-decide basis – the festival was created during the period of lockdown and features new commissions created by artists working at home, for audiences to enjoy at home.
