A motorcycle meditation.
The performance involves planned journeys that tour throughout the city and the surrounding landscape, with choreographed moments of bikers being separated and brought together. Sound design plays a large part in the performance, layering interviews, music, and soundscapes, gathered from – and created with - the local biker community, into an audio experience, a mini documentary reflecting individual rider’s thoughts and experiences of being on and with a bike.
//RIDE is a celebration of motorcycle culture. It is a reflection on how we think and see things differently when travelling through landscape. It is about how we look forward and how we look back, and whom we choose to travel with along the way. //RIDE is a meditation on freedom, searching, standing alone, and holding onto someone for dear life.
Abigail is currently developing a world tour of //RIDE. She hopes to collaborate with local riders from each place the work visits.
