Running On Empty

1 Feb 2014

Running wild. Running out of time. Running on empty… The story of a man, a woman and their encounters over time, travelling through dreams, fears and jagged memories. An absurd, humorous and sometimes devastating journey through a woman’s loss, her struggle for a future and the emptiness she must overcome to survive. How long will she keep running?

Dance, text and song combine in this intrepid new work from the Brighton-based dance theatre company Probe. Running On Empty moves between the epic and the intimate, from the darkness of dreams to the intricacy of daily interactions. Probe artistic director Antonia Grove brings together an impressive team of creative collaborators including: Jo McInnes (director), Brad Birch (writer), Charlie Morrissey (choreographer) and Scott Smith (composer).

Co-programmed in partnership with South East Dance

Antonia Grove is a South East Dance Associate Artist. Running on Empty is supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England and is commissioned by Pavilion Dance South West. Further support from The Point Eastleigh, Nightingale Theatre, Soho Theatre and Greenwich Dance
