What does it mean to confront our own evanescence?
To notice the changes in our bodies? Being treated differently by others?
Learning the new cultural norms?
Do I still belong to this world?
Do I still belong to myself?
Where is my “I”?
In a memory or in a mirror?
A group of retired dancers use their movement and words to express the experience of getting older; they talk about the ageing process, what is happening to their bodies and minds, but also about a new, different way of perceiving the world around them.
Inspired by Jean Amery’s book On Aging: Revolt and Resignation.
