Does the dancing stop when the body ages?

How does the older dancer draw on sensory memory and the imagination to make dances?

Old People Dancing

What does mature ballet look like?

What IS a mature dance?’

Research lead by Jennifer Jackson explores these questions with a team of mature dancers (ages 45-65) whose career experience includes teaching and choreographing as well as dancing as independent artists and with prestigious companies. The project culminates in a live dance and music event interweaving set and improvised dances with discussion at the University of Surrey’s Ivy Arts Centre in May.

Here at URC Jennifer is joined by Oxford artists Susie Crow of Ballet in Small Spaces and musician composer Malcolm Atkins of Oxford Improvisers in extracts of the work in progress.  Please join us for this informal showing – old or young, your thoughts and feedback will be very welcome!
