ABOUT THE WORK
Inspired by the story of Bolivian warrior Bartolina Sisa and modern day women who are out-performing men at endurance sports. Endurance looks at how we endure, why we endure, and how women can make their innate propensity for endurance work in their favour to tip the balance of power. This piece is in the early stages of development. Thanks to the entire UPSTART Team, Claire Symonds at The Lowry & Sarah Sharp at HOME.
Audience are advised that this performance contains descriptions of sexual violence, rape, torture and war crimes.
