‘Thanks for joining me. We haven’t got long. We only have 5 kilometres together. That’s 15 minutes. I’ve been doing this for some time. An hour. A day. A week. It doesn’t really matter anymore. We’ve all lost track of time, haven’t we? We’re just going around in circles.’
Cyclical sees Michael cycle on an exercise bike in his home for 7 hours, the time it would take to get from Nottingham (where he spent lockdown) and Manchester (where he works). He will cycle the equivalent distance of 85 km and audience members will be invited to join him for 15 minutes at a time to accompany him on his journey and share stories of bikes and bike rides and the cyclical nature of working from home. He is cycling to work. He is cycling from home to HOME. He is busy going nowhere. Commissioned by HOME.
