Audience members progress through the roles of Spectator, Rider, and Controller. They may be forced to watch the pleasure of a lover being manipulated by a stranger's breathing - heard publicly amplified - or face the awkwardness of controlling a stranger themselves.

Breathless features a motorised swing controlled by breathing data collected from WiFi gas mask respirators. It is is produced in collaboration with Horizon Digital Economy Research and supported by Arts Council England.
