Run—a performance installation by De Quincey Co that explores extreme energy and motion. Run invites audiences into an unpredictable space, where objects and bodies become integrated elements of a massive, warping environment; where suspended objects oscillate between stability and chaos.

Building on De Quincey Co’s renowned site-specific performance The Stirring performed in November 2007, in Run elements from the CarriageWorks building are incorporated to create a mobile structure which is driven by, and affects, the movement of the performers. The mobile is a reflection of CarriageWorks’ history which invites a new set of relationships to the place, its origins and its future. As a study of locomotion, the performers generate movement on different planes, actually defying gravity. Media and video images create layers of meaning, while live video cameras capture, edit and project the subtle, elemental relationships of motion in space.

De Quincey Co’s ensemble of highly skilled physical performers are joined by some of Australia’s leading artists for this bold and awe-inspiring new work. (Text courtesy of De Quincey Co.)
