Description

This triple bill is suitable for the whole family and unites and celebrates the creativity of older adults in the North with works created by community dance companies from Leeds, Sheffield and Liverpool.

Crossing the Bar by Men!Dancing!

Crossing the Bar considers what it is to be human. From creation and formation of cells, organs and consciousness to the inevitably of our own Mortality. Inspired by Tennyson’s poem of the same name the dancers swarm together in Unity at the point of existence.

Men!Dancing! are a dedicated and passionate community of men, aged 50+, who have found and share an interest in dance and creative expression.

Footsteps In The Dust by The Performance Ensemble

What would you take with you if you had minutes to leave your home?

Inspired by witnessing walls that divide borders and people, the Performance Ensemble’s latest work explores migration and journeys through life.

Bringing together professional and community dancers aged 60 and over, Footsteps In The Dust presents images of loss, migration and incarceration. Choreographed by renowned artist Tamara McLorg with direction from original member of Phoenix Dance Theatre, Villmore James.

The Fallen by Third Bite Dance

The Fallen is a new performance work presented by Third Bite Dance. From falling in love to falling from grace. Falling into desire to falling victim to rage when our bodies fail us. With a cast of twelve older adult bodies on stage, this live performance captures the intense spectrum of human emotion exposing the often hidden anger, passion and intimacy inherent in growing older. Through movement, spoken word and imagery, the work will present the visceral embodied experiences of ageing.
