A new producer

I would like to welcome to the project my new producer (Producer- Artist development at South East Dance) Elizabeth Mischler.
We have been working together over the last few weeks on a GFA and booking of a tour for Running on Empty. Elizabeth is nothing short of outstanding, and I'm really excited about us producing this work together.

Everyone can run - it is a primitive instinct. Escape from danger. Hunt for food. Competition. Freedom. Gameplay. It reminds us to breathe. It makes us feel alive.

Running wild
Running out of time
Run away with me?
Running out of love
Running on Empty

Running on Empty tells the story of two people colliding over time, where a relationship filled with curiosity, intimacy and tension can suddenly explode into movement – until something has to be said.  Dance, text and song combine to take us through an ever changing, ever growing web: between peace and struggle, between reality and fantasy, between escape and confrontation.
Perpetual, repeating, like a cycle, like running...

 Im attracted to writing that is timeless, that speaks of simple human interaction, chance encounters and of deep-rooted connections, connections between physical and emotional mindsets, underpinned by these central questions:  ‘what gives a person the ability to run for a long distance?  And what is the connection between the physical act of running and the mind power involved in any action that repeats a pattern over and over again over time?’   Stamina and longevity are about more than just fitness, and can also be applied to human relationships and, finding further analogies for that, running away from something, going full pelt, a step too far, running on empty.(Antonia Grove)
