We Invent the Real is a mid-length studio performance piece that uses the bicycle as a frame to consider human striving towards courage, connection, growth and contribution.
Through film, sound, dance, movement and spoken word, We Invent the Real features strong female characters: everyday women practicing freedom. Its loose and non-literal narrative allows audience connections to arrive like poetry as the rich sensory piece unfolds.Departing from a place of dis-ease and consumer
dis-satisfaction, We Invent the Real follows
characters as they spin on their paths towards
fulfillment and alignment. We Invent the Real illuminates the reality of city
streets: think the sound of traffic on Hastings Street
on a rainy rush hour morning.
***WHO ARE THE B:C:CLETTES?***
Based in Vancouver, the B:C:Clettes Collective is committed to creating bicycle-inspired culture. Over the last six years, they’ve toured internationally and locally, and were even featured under the lights of a LA police helicopter during one notorious street performance.
Currently a core of six women, the B:C:Clettes will collaborate with a broad range of talented Vancouver artists and technicians to stage We Invent the Real. This production furthers the B:C:Clettes’ transition from high-energy outdoor performances at festivals and community events to innovative community engagement (altering the traditional performer/spectator relationship) and interdisciplinary work for studio/theater settings.
