Description

The shape changes but the essence remains.

Aging is an uneven process of fall and recovery, of loss and discovery. As the material world dissolves, the energy in all things becomes vivid and clear. How do we traverse this new landscape with joy, and honesty? How can curiosity and active yielding, help us embrace mystery? How do we hold the mantel of ageing and patience, through physical loss?

OLD is a bumpy journey of possibility.

“(…) It is rooted in the intimate, shared experience of dance. In the clarity of intentions, and above all, in an astonishing mastery of relationships – with breath, emotions, movement, space, the audience.” – Catherine Lalonde, Le Devoir
