A Moment’s Peace and The Women’s Creative Company in Co-Production with The Arches present ENDURANCE.

“We’ve been searching,

Searching for stories about her

Whoever she might be…”

Endurance is a striking new theatre production that invites audiences to embark on a journey of discovery, one that imagines and recreates the historical and personal stories of Commonwealth sportswomen from across the world.

Created and performed by over twenty women living in Glasgow, Endurance considers the changing role of women in competitive sport, examining what it takes to be the best and why ‘what’ you represent matters.

This piece, presented for the first time during Festival 2014, has been developed under the Artistic Direction of Catrin Evans, following her recent success Dear Scotland for the National Theatre of Scotland show, and Grid Iron’s promenade sell-out Edinburgh International Festival 2013 epic Leaving Planet Earth. The show has been developed with Jennifer Edgar and the creative team includes Janice Parker (Movement), Claire Halleran (Design), Scott Tynholm (Sound) and Lucy Gaizely (Creative Producer).

Endurance is an official Festival 2014 event.

A Moment’s Peace is a Glasgow-based theatre company dedicated to making innovative new theatre and working with diverse community groups to create high quality artistic work. We create productions, interactive arts events and participatory projects that explore the links between the personal and the political.

All performances of Endurance will be BSL-interpreted.
