Co-creator Port of Piraeus, Greece 2013
"Runner" was a site-specific, interactive performance where audiences were led one at a time on a wild obstacle course through the Port of Piraeus. From hotel rooms to bars, and abandoned warehouses to reclaimed flats, audiences traveled a highly designed path in a fictional thriller to "escape the city."
Audiences begin their journey at Piraeus station
The friendly son of the man who owns the magazine stand hands you your map
A call to action: You must leave the city before the port closes!
An assortment of characters to meet along the way in hotel rooms...
A car transports you from one end of the port to the other
A secret meeting in a local taverna
Words of advice before you enter the old city
You are welcome to join in a game of chess
But they are always watching and waiting
