Work in development
A funny and inspiring look at what it takes to be a serious amateur, Tetra-Decathlon celebrates coming last, and then coming back for more.
Lauren signed up to compete in the World UltraMulti-Event Championships, having never set foot on an athletics track before. Featuring running, hurdling, jumping and throwing, a tetra-decathlon is 14 kinds of daft. With athletic physicality, Tetra-Decathlon tells the story of the many hurdles en route to the start-line.
Directed by multi-award winner, Jenna Watt (Faslane, Flâneurs) and performed by Lauren Hendry, Tetra-Decathlon is a show for those who got picked last, but know there’s more to give.
