Description

Crossing the Pacific is probably the hardest problem to solve for anyone who'd like to travel around the world without flying. The opening scenes were naturally shot in London, beginning with posh Victorians strolling on Rotten Row, the riding path running along the southern perimeter of Hyde Park. The participating artists either exhibit a new piece that has been especially conceived in response to the novel, or present an existing work that relates to a theme or topic outlined by the narrative.

While Fogg was unable to find another steamer headed for Yokohama, he manages to hire the Tankadere to take him to 31. Similarly, the train between Chicago and New York City has since been re-routed further north via South Bend, Toledo, Cleveland and Albany, and no longer follows the route taken by Fogg through Fort Wayne, Mansfield, Alliance, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Newark and Jersey City. Around the World in Eighty Days marks the first in a new series of shows developed by the Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA) that takes a novel, a short story or other written narrative as a point of departure. With the ICA positioned in central London and SLG situated in the south of the city, this exhibition examines how location can define and influence both artistic programming and its reception.Nonetheless, the speed of rail travel has increased substantially since the 1870s, despite the priority of freight and the comparatively low general speed limit of 79 mph (127 km/h) in the US. The protagonist is Phileas Fogg who embarks on an ambitious journey to win a wager over his fellow Reform Club members and travel around the world in a record-breaking amount of time! The train then proceeded on towards Fort Kearney and Omaha, though it was far from smooth-sailing as they would be attacked by a tribe of Sioux on the way, during which the conductor was incapacitated. Freight ships do frequently ply the route taken by Fogg, but there's likely no passenger ship as direct flights to Hong Kong take about four hours. Here, they move on to Brindisi (Italy) where they change to a steamer that brings them across the Mediterranean Sea.

Keep the bubbling spirit of adventure alive and replicate the route from Around the World in 80 Days to be the ‘Phileas Fogg’ of the 21st century.Filming was suspended in March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but resumed on 1 October that year. Fogg’s Tavern does offer food, it is traditionally a Victorian bar that serves up alcoholic drinks throughout the week in Theatre Land. Kneedling, a man paid by Bellamy, tries to bribe Passepartout to slow Fogg down by giving him something he claims will make him sleep for a few days. Brindisi has good ferry connections to different ports in Greece, from where you can get by train or bus to Istanbul.
