We are delighted to present four performances that celebrate the participation of older adults in dance.
We warmly welcome ThreeScore Dance Company from Brighton, DANCE SIX-0 from Salisbury and our own company of Beige. DÍRTZ Theatre also present Nonna(s) Don’t Cry, a poetic homage to the process of getting old.
Yorkshire Dance present Beige – a tongue-in-cheek, playful look at getting older and challenging stereotypes. Beige was created as a local mass dance to celebrate International Day of Older People.
ThreeScore Dance Company present Après Moi, a new work by Yael Flexer ringing artistry that embraces life experience to the stage. Presented by performers all aged 60+ and following commissions for the Brighton Dome and performances at Elixir/Sadler’s Wells and more, ThreeScore are embarking on their first national tour.
DANCE SIX-0 present Head in My Bag, a work by Liz Aggiss See this bag? Well… this old bag holds many secrets… With a spit of techno, punk and rock ‘n roll, Head In My Bag dumps age centre stage and kicks preconceptions into the long grass. Pushing the boundaries of what’s expected of older people’s dance.
This event is Pay As You Feel and any contribute will go directly to our speakers, technicians and festival staff. You can make a payment here.Back to all eventsBack to Ageless
