The Place presents Requardt & Rosenberg

Future Cargo


Festival Gardens

Limited Availability

Tickets: Pay What You Want, Free - £15

A truck arrives from an unknown location loaded with a mystery shipment. As the sides roll up a strange and unstoppable process is set into motion.

Future Cargo is a sci-fi dance show performed in a 40 foot haulage truck and, like all Requardt & Rosenberg’s shows, it delivers the delicate integrity of a deeply intimate experience within a large-scale dance spectacle.

Future Cargo is the latest outdoor work by Frauke Requardt & David Rosenberg. Created with longstanding collaborators, Hannah Clark (set and costume), Ben & Max Ringham (music and sound) and lighting designer Malcolm Rippeth.


‘Magnificently sly and witty dance theatre…stunning’  The Stage on DeadClub™

‘[An] ambitious, innovate spectacle’  Financial Times on The Roof

‘Their work regularly out-Lynches David Lynch; a cutesy, cock-eyed aesthetic with images that gnaw at your like horror.’ on Requardt & Rosenberg, 2017
