After COVID delays EASY RIDERS is back, gearing up for presentation in 2021! For two weeks across November and December APHIDS takes over Trades Hall for a special site specific development in collaboration with four on-demand workers and our artistic team.

EASY RIDERS is led by APHIDS’ co-director and visual artist Eugenia Lim, and made in collaboration with an established choreographer, electronic musician and filmmaker, gig economy workers (real-life rideshare and service workers for Uber, Deliveroo and Airtasker) in a collaborative choreography that explores the impact of technology, outsourcing and gig work on real-world bodies, relationships and environments.

EASY RIDERS will premiere in 2021.
