About ZoieLogic Dance Theatre

ZoieLogic Dance Theatre, led by founding Artistic Director Zoie Golding, challenges perceptions of what dance is, who it is for and how it is presented. We’re on a mission to get more people involved in dance, especially men and boys and those less likely to see or take part in the arts. We make this happen by creating bold and surprising professional shows, innovative engagement projects and inspiring talent development programmes.

About Ride

Meet Clive, Hank, Steve and our amazing 1986 red Ford Orion, Stanley…

Ride portrays the story of three men whose separate paths coincide for a short time as they discover a most curious thing; a car that seems to have a life of its own. These four souls, three men and one machine take a strange, exciting journey together, on which they discover and explore man and machines’ reliance on each other, and themselves.

RIDE was originally created in 2016 and has successfully toured the UK ever since.  It most recently toured in summer 2020 in a specially adapted version of the show for outside care homes, as a gift during the pandemic.
