Future Cargo’s mystery shipment will arrive at Bournemouth’s Avenue Lane Loading Bay setting a strange and unstoppable process into motion. Featuring a conveyer belt of galactic performers you’ll experience an immersive, strangely beautiful and ethereal sci-fi dance spectacle like nothing you’ve seen before! 

Presented by The Place, Future Cargo is a sci-fi dance spectacle created by Requardt &Rosenberg.  Don’t miss it.  Book your headset now!



The full experience starts with Geophonic.  A deep listening, sound journey like no other! Using unique and beautiful hand-spun aluminium geophones you’ll be taken through Bournemouth Central Gardens to the Loading Bay where Future Cargo mysteriously awaits. Along the route you’ll learn about your surroundings and enjoy some spontaneous dance – plus a few other surprises thrown in!

Created by Lorna Rees, Geophonic is a geology sound experience like no other!  Book your geophone now!

And that’s just the start of our Summer Festival! The full Headliner weekend features Future Cargo,
Geophonic, Co-Evo, a Silent Disco, Neon Dance robotic workshops, DanceStream Films, Just Us
