Presented by Simon Jones and Upstart Theatre

"I made a decision
To forget about the boy growing inside her
To fly with the gods
Like Marco Pantani in the mountains.
This is my church."

As a child, he watched his father watching Marco win the Tour de France. Now, on the
threshold of becoming a father himself, he will rise and fall in his hero’s footsteps.
Marco is an original piece of theatre with dance which follows the pilgrimage of a super-fan as he tells the epic story of his childhood hero, the cycling champion and drug cheat, Marco Pantani. An obsessively physical solo show about being the best.
