Company of Others Ensemble
This short excerpt is a work in progress showing of a full length work that will tour in 2018. The piece asks how we mark time if not in years? How can we understand age differently, if age is but a number. Is it in the rituals we perform, the memories we hold, or the Lunar eclipses we witness.
Company of Others Ensemble is a performing company who rehearse weekly at West Denton Community Centre and happen to be over the age of 65.
The dancers have developed a strong passion for dance and creating choreography that speaks of their experiences. We aim to inspire other older people, celebrate age, challenge preconceptions of age, and provide a unique dance experience for audiences which is sensitive, moving and outstanding in quality.
Our core values are Creativity, Belonging and Respect.
Rituals was part of PUG#4 at Tyneside Irish Centre 1st December 2017.
