Members of a women's contemporary dance troupe, the Cholmondleys, starting two custom-built motorcycles before riding them on stage at Watford Palace Theatre in a rehearsal for their show Metalcholica, which takes the form to its limit. Part of the 'choreography' by Lea Anderson involves one dancer reading sections from a motorcycle service manual while another dancer repairs the bike. The dancers' silver-studded and tassled leather costumes were specially made for the troupe by the Oscar-nominated British costume designer, Sandy Powell. Metalcholica is playing at the Place Theatre in London for two weeks before a national tour.
