Theater Skam spins with Victoria cycling festival

Theatre on a bike rides into town

Matthew Payne

Theater Skam is joining the Victoria International Cycling Festival.

The “theater on a bike” company will perform its annual summer project known as Bike Ride, June 16, 17, 23 and 24 beginning at Cecilia Ravine Park.

Skam is one of three arts and entertainment events on the cycling festival’s calendar this year, with Pedalling Art and Spoke ‘n’ Word.

“We wanted to get into the festival even before (it debuted) last year,” said Theatre Skam’s artistic producer Matthew Payne.

Both the performers and audience cycle along as Bike Ride presents a series of short shows along a four-kilometre stretch of the Galloping Goose Trail.

Pedalling Art will feature cycle art in galleries and cafés throughout the festival (June 1 to 24). A bicycle-inspired speaker will take up a spot and throw words around downtown as part of the Spoke ‘n’ Word series.
