About the Show/Event
Information for Engine Brake at The New Diorama Theatre, Inner London (Play). A story connecting two countries, two cities, and two people, told through shifting up the gears of our relationship with the car 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. A multi-national cast share the driving on an epic road-trip of a show about England and India, pedal to the metal through ideas of progress and growth. Original music mixing East and West joins a symphony of car horns and jingles as they sing along, stuck in traffic. A billboard looming above the gridlock shows an SUV gliding around the bends of an empty and endless mountain highway.
