One For The Ages
An evening of music and dance, developed from interviews with the very young and very old
One For The Ages will use music and dance to explore and bridge the gap between young and old in a variety of ways.
The material for the electronic score will be gathered in interviews with communities of old and young people; interviewees will describe their relationship with someone in the opposite age group
We will collectively shape the musical and dramatic narrative from these interviews and musical references, and will include both young and visibly old dancers
While one goal is to produce a full evening of music and dance, we expect to develop the materials in outreach performances combining audiences from schools and retirement communities; and we anticipate continuing these outreach projects in coordination with the eventual theatrical presentations
