Women & Theatre presents an audio performance in Perry Hall Park, using the stories & voices of local women from Perry Barr. Tickets: £3
Run, Jump, Throw is an audio performance to be listened to whilst walking a particular route around Perry Hall Park. Join us to hear women’s experiences of track and field; making leaps, overcoming hurdles, achieving their personal bests and passing the baton to the next generation.
As an international sporting spotlight is shone on Perry Barr amid developments for the 2022 Commonwealth Games, Run, Jump, Throw illuminates and celebrates the voices of local women. It has been made through workshops and conversations with local women whose voices you will hear.
It can be downloaded directly to your phone as a podcast before coming to the park or you can borrow an MP3 player for the walk. Details of how to download the podcast or book an MP3 player will be sent to you via email.
Run, Jump, Throw is the second part of Women & Theatre’s Women & Sport Trilogy created with community casts and performed in non-theatre spaces across Birmingham.
The route around Perry Hall Park is mainly flat, it consists of concrete paths, pathways created by footfall, grassy areas and slopes. There is one step as you enter the secret garden, however a more accessible route is clearly marked on the map you will be given upon arrival.
