— The Mount Without
Solo performance by Ryan O'Shea
price: Headfirst Tickets


Aurora borealis comes in view... A cloud appears above your head... and a beam of light comes shining down, on you.

Welcome to I_RAN, a solo performance investigating notions of anxiety and the human desire to run away from emotion. Pungent with the euphoric melancholy of electronic music and taking the narrative and stylings of hit song I Ran (So Far Away) by 80’s new wave, synth-pop band A Flock of Seagulls, I_RAN follows a character as they fall in love with a seagull and struggle to face their feelings. A treadmill, a scrolling LED text bar and a mute performer guide audiences through an unusual world formed with a sharp, mesmeric aesthetic.
Playful, surreal, and lonely, this is for those who dream of running... of running far away...

Featuring a post-show talk with Bristol queer icon Tom Marshman.

Doors: 19:30. show: 20:00
