To the North! To the East! To the South! To the West! To the Bar! To the Dogs!
For four days Gregg Whelan and Gary Winters of Lone Twin will take to the streets of Dublin on two small folding bikes. Attempting to cover the entire city, they’ll begin their daily journey from Project to return that evening and deliver a thirty minute dispatch from that day’s riding; stories of a city at work, rest and play, stories of the brave, the humble and the puncture repair kit.
Active since 1997, Lone Twin have shown performance works across the world to great acclaim. Held between Gregg Whelan and Gary Winters, the collaborative project deals specifically with ideas of place, travel and orientation. Tours and performances in 2004 have taken place in the UK, USA, Germany, Belgium, Norway and Sweden.
‘Energy, sweat and scruffiness, almost unbearable, these bodies are uncontrollable.’
