What does it mean to grow old?

Seven actors aged between 60 and 75 offer a poetic and fun promenade performance of theatre and dance, challenging our perception of old age, the fears it carries and the treasures it hides.

In the space of a century, life expectancy has been extended by 30 years. But, beyond biological markers, what does it actually mean to be old?

Follow the escapees on their journey as they reconnect with the world around them and put the spotlight on ageing in our modern society.

"This show tells the tale of life. We all have to die, that's how it is. So you have to enjoy the good times as well as the bad ones." Yvette, retirement home resident.
