About: Ventoux

Lance Armstrong’s sacrifice to Mont Ventoux in the 2000 Tour de France was to gift victory to his fierce rival Marco Pantani in the greatest contest the mountain and the sport had ever seen. Marco Pantani’s sacrifice was his own life just five years later. Both were plagued by allegations of doping throughout their careers – now one is revered, and the other disgraced.

The mystical Mont Ventoux, having claimed the mental and physical health of many professionals before them, was their legendary battlefield. 2Magpies Theatre’s Ventoux replays the race between Marco Pantani and Lance Armstrong live on stage. Expect a pair of road bikes, live video and sound mixing and a syringe full of hindsight.

This production is supported by the New Diorama Emerging Companies Fund and these performances are supported by IdeasTap.

2Magpies Theatre create new and exciting live performance presented in unique site-responsive locations in Nottingham and beyond. Their most recent piece, The Litvinenko Project, performed in cafes, combined fact and fiction to explore the controversial poisoning of Russian dissident Alexander Litvinenko, poisoned in a cup of tea. Now they embark on the Tour de France.
