Bike Curious Collective

Bike Curious Collective is a group that I (Tatiana Carnevale) have put together to create a project this summer about the history of women in cycling in Winnipeg, which will result in a devised promenade style theatre production on bicycles, half from a historical perspective and half from a localized contemporary perspective.

With the rise of Covid and the decline of the traditional theatrical space as a direct result, theatre pieces designed to be performed in alternative spaces and outdoor locations are increasingly relevant. To have a work that can take place outdoors, with audience members at a safe distance from one another, will be welcome even after theatres and other performance spaces re-open their doors. Secondly, with climate change occurring at a rapid pace, to have projects that not only encourage ways to slow global warming, like promoting active transportation as a viable means, but simultaneously avoid a lot of the wastefulness that comes with theatre production (lights, water, materials, etc.) is extremely timely.

I am the project lead and am a queer first-generation settler, who has been working in independent and professional theatre for almost ten years. In addition to my theatre work, I am an avid bike commuter interested in music, the environment, urbanism, and creating unique and memorable community experiences.
