Join us for a screening of this excellent documentary and a post-screening discussion with older people and younger people alike!

Type of Event: Drama Workshop

(English) Yeah Yeah will be running free physical theatre workshops that aim to create a work that challenges perceptions of older people.

Based on exercises adapted from Frantic Assembly and other physical theatre practitioners, we will create a performance work with workshop participants.

We anticipate that the resulting work will conform to and then break perceptions, incorporating the contrast of what we might expect to see versus that which we might not expect.

Maximum of 15 participants

The four sessions will result in a performance of the work on 16 May on the Pier at 11:00am
