Abstract

This chapter presents a discursive dialogue between the performative nature of endurance events, and artistic modes of site-based performance that employ endurance methods and formats. It explores endurance feats (such as long distance running and fundraising challenges) as events framed and transmitted through performance tropes, and considers how embodied acts of endurance are employed in site-based performance events witnessed by others. Reflecting on contemporary events, the chapter explores body-site relations enacted in this work and considers what happens, and where this work might go or retreat to, in the time of a pandemic, leading to a discussion of feats of endurance and performance acts in domestic spaces created and performed during lockdown.
