ENGINE BRAKE

Thursday 17 – Saturday 19 May at 7.45pm
Also Saturday at 2.45pm

A story connecting two people and two cities told through shifting the gears of our relationship with the cars, over decades and across continents. It's a way of getting from A to B and everything in between: a status symbol, a whole livelihood, a member of the family.

English and Indian cast share the driving on an epic road-trip of a show, pedal to the metal through questions of progress and aspiration and of the ties that bind countries. Original music mixing East and West joins a symphony of car horns and jingles as they sing along, stuck in traffic. 'The Relentless Pursuit of Perfection. Motion and Emotion. Don't Dream It, Drive It...' A gleaming SUV looms on a billboard above the gridlock, gliding around the bends of an empty and endless mountain highway.

The Plastacine Men return to The Salberg following the success of the dreamlike There Shall Be Fireworks.
