Through & Out²
‘Through & Out²’ is a cross-over between dance, sport, Augmented Reality (AR), biometrics and rope-skipping in which the performer will endure the, physical, mental and emotional states of a marathon runner in only 45 minutes.
Audiences will experience the physical exertion of the performer through spectating in the traditional sense but by also accessing physiological statistical information, generated in real time, through an specifically designed mobile App. This experience will also include a compelling narrative which will give access to the performer’s memories, emotions and/or desires.
Through & Out² Trailer
The current world record for a marathon was set by Dennis Kimetto in 2014: two hours, two minutes and fifty seven seconds.
I am going to do it in only 45 minutes*.
*According to several sources, 10 minutes of jumping rope is equal to 30 minutes of running at 6 miles per hour. Therefore, 40 minutes of skipping could be compared to a half marathon. However, in ‘Through & Out’ the demands placed on the performers make skipping twice as hard… you do the maths…
‘Through & Out²’ is kindly supported by:
“Each word you said in the performance hit every single cell in my body deep inside. They brought memories, created thoughts and made me watch you breathless”
“Powerfull, organic and very intense”
“The most demanding performance I have seen in my life, I was sweating with him all the way”
