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? In 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 a performer,?theatremaker, and movement director based in Manchester. Her work examines what women and girls?are allowed to?do with their bodies, her relationship to the UK, and the duality of living between cultures and races.
