Acting Our Age UK Premiere
|Performance: Acting Our Age has grown organically through ongoing conversations and a shared interest in the ageing body in performance. A co-production choreographed by Yael Flexer & Galit Liss with an intergenerational cast of performers aged 26 to 76 Acting Our Age explores performers’ relationship to dance and the stage at different points in their lives. At times they question or refuse to ‘act their age’, while other moments celebrate the ageing body and its embodied sensitivity.|
