Inspired by our collective nightmare of being chased, the manifestation of this in film culture and real life experience, three women running as if their lives depended on it, enact various chase scenes at a break-neck pace. In combination with video cameras displaying live feed projections, a collection of props and costumes, the spectacle is both live and on screen.
An absurd DIY film studio exploring the fear, adrenaline, and comedy of the pursued. ‘Cutting to the chase’ is a common turn of phrase originating from early silent films. Screenwriters would bore the audience with unnecessary filler for a length of time leading up to the chase scene, which was the most anticipated part of the movie. Each scene in this performance is delivered straight, no chaser.
