AS WE RUN WE BECOME
A small radical act of solidarity in a public space. A one-to-one running encounter with a woman I have never met before.
Part theatre, part conversation, part journey, part smashing the patriarchy.
This outdoor performance takes the form of a run, or journey. Supported by ACE, HOME, BAC, Sheffield Theatres & Oxford Playhouse.
Get your running shoes on…
…join Jennifer Jackson’s running encounter as she invites women to run with her on a one-to-one basis for 'up to' 40 minutes.
Whilst you travel, she will chat about your experiences of exercising and moving through public spaces. Jenni may record your experiences of running, but this isn’t a pre-requisite for signing up. Post run/show you will cool down over a civilised cup of tea at the Old Fire Station.
Please come dressed to run/move. Participants will meet Jenni in the foyer at the venue, then walk with her to the starting point of the journey.
The run will take place along a pre-designated route, for up to 40 minutes, ending at the venue, where Jenni will share a tea/coffee with them.
Jenni has been documenting the encounters, and creating an archive of images capturing the places women do not feel safe to run alone.
