Rider Spoke is a work for cyclists combining theatre with game play and state of the art technology. It was created by acclaimed UK company Blast Theory premiered with a sold-out season at the Barbican in London in 2007. It has since been shown in 22 cities worldwide. Quiet RIOT were engaged by Blast Theory to deliver two Australian presentations of the work at the South Australian Museum for Adelaide Fringe Festival and at ACMI in Melbourne in 2022.


Tailored to each city it is presented in, this reflective and immersive experience allows participants to record their own audio contribution to this spoken word 'map of the city' that evolves as each participant takes part. As participants discover new stories, and divulge their own, they are invited to weave through the city and explore new and familiar places, as they reflect guided by unseen narrators.

This immersive experience can be enjoyed with a range of access requirements - equipped with a smartphone and headphones, you can roam the city by bike, wheelchair, scooter or on foot.

Blast Theory is renowned internationally as one of the most adventurous artists' groups using interactive media, creating groundbreaking new forms of performance and interactive art that mixes audiences across the internet, live performance and digital broadcasting. Led by Matt Adams, Ju Row Farr and Nick Tandavanitj, the group's work explores interactivity and the social and political aspects of technology. It confronts a media saturated world in which popular culture rules, using performance, installation, video, mobile and online technologies to ask questions about the ideologies present in the information that envelops us.
