An average amount of 10,000 litres of air circulates through our body every single day. 10,000 litres is  a stage work which revolves around breath. Three individuals take movement right back to the body’s most essential function and use it to define their personality and create relationships whilst touching upon issues of existence, power and freedom.

10,000 litres is supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England. The work is commissioned by The Place and supported by Dance4, Onassis Cultural CentreCitymovesChelsea Theatre and Queen Mary University.

Performed at The Place’s Robin Howard Dance Theatre, Onassis Cultural Centre, 22nd Kalamata International Dance Festival, Rich Mix, Sophiensaele.
