Returning after a sell out run at PUSH FESTIVAL 2021 and an acclaimed run at Battersea Arts Centre:

Jenni is not an athlete. Jenni has not done enough training. Jenni wants to perform a feat of endurance, live and in real time. She really wants to be able to run up hills and mountains.

Since her mum is Bolivian, she’s banking on her DNA containing Inca genes, which she hopes will mean that she will be shit hot at running up mountains. Naturally.

Exploring colonial legacies through the prism of the Bolivian/Aymaran warrior Bartolina Sisa and modern day women who are out-performing men at ultra marathon running, Jenni wants to know how we carry on when things get really hard?

Using integrated creative captions and a cinematic soundscape, ENDURANCE is a blend of dance, theatre, and an attempt at a sports spectacle, 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.

Jenni is an award winning British Latinx performer, theatremaker, and movement director/ choreographer  based in Manchester. She won a Jerwood Live Award in 2021, and is currently supported by the Barbican Centre (Open Lab), and MGCFutures to create her new show WRESTLELADSWRESTLE. Her work examines what women and girls are permitted to do with their bodies, and the complexities of living between cultures.
