Written and performed by Hannah Van Sciver
On Sunday February 17th 2019 I attended the performance of Bicycle Face at Passage Theatre.
Trenton Cycling Revolution aka TCR coordinated a group rate and several members of the advocacy group rode bikes to the one person performance.
The full house was delighted by the efforts of Hannah Van Sciver who portrayed 3 characters each representing one of the following years; 1896, 2016 and 2136.
I was unfamiliar with the term "bicycle face" prior to the performance and appreciate the delivery of information from Hannah. With fine timing and consistent energy Hannah addressed bits of history regarding women and biking.
The ~50 minute performance finished with a Q and A session.
Trenton has a thriving biking culture with several residents using bicycles as a form of transportation. In addition many people making up the diverse population of Trenton utilize biking for recreational, fitness and networking opportunities.
Several efforts are happening to promote biking in Trenton such as tours, bike lanes, parking areas and maintenance sites however we have a ways to go educating the masses about safety and infrastructure upgrades.
