Encounters
Research

During Act Your Age's second year the nine choreographers worked for a full month in the respective partner countries to create a work. They continued their research, deepened their subject themes and collaborated with professional dancers and amateurs in creating performances, of which several were shown at the Act Your Age Festival.

‘Through working with an 89-year-old great-grandmother, a 74-year-old grandmother and a 4-year-old child, we were given an insight into lives in which love, lust for life and questions of death were very much present.’
Choreographer Evie Demetriou
