Age: 16+

Duration: 1hr approx (40 mins per run plus cool down / cup of tea afterwards)

Get your running shoes on…

…join Jennifer Jackson’s running encounter as she invites women to run, walk or travel with her on a one-to-one basis for ‘up to’ 40 minutes.

Part theatre. Part conversation. Part exercise. Part smashing the patriarchy.

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.

Please come dressed to run. You will meet Jenni in the foyer at ARC, then walk with her to the start of the route (to be confirmed). The run will last up to 40 minutes, ending at the No 60 café within ARC, where Jenni will share a tea/coffee with you. Book your time slot now (if you’d like to participate but the times listed don’t work for you, please get in touch).

If you have access requirements, please let us know and we can discuss the route.

As we run we become is a small radical act of solidarity in a public space.

Written and devised: by Jennifer Jackson with Simon Carroll Jones
Performers: Jennifer Jackson
Producing: The Murmuration
Previous collaborators: Davinia Jokhi (HOME Manchester), Rosie Scudder (Producer)

    Women and power; exercising in public spaces; safety and risk; contested space. Jennifer also explores how innately biased towards men, town and city planning is, meaning that women, families, and people with disabilities are often overlooked.

    The encounter continues on a digital space where Jenni will upload photographs of the runs and reflections. See the official show Instagram page for more images @aswerunwebecome.
