A Solo about aging with a dancer and a rolling walker.

We are living in a society where youth is most important and aging or winkles are answered with plastic surgeries and fitness training.

Normally we know rolling walkers as devices for old and handicapped people. This dance solo transforms the rolling walker into a dance partner and want to show in a playful way that also older dancers and performers not to be left on the shelf. The rolling walker gets a new role to be a dance instrument and dance platform that enables certain movements and images.

And equally as our perspective changes on the device through the dance solo, hopefully it will also convert our view on the aging of our body. Of course the movement possibilities will transform through the years but that must not be a disadvantage. Rather we can and should exploit and increase this new potential as much as it is possible for us.
