A professional study day initiated by KUMQUAT | performing arts in conjunction with the CN D and the biennale de la danse de Lyon, this one-day session is aimed at collectively exploring ways of working and inhabiting the stage beyond the age of 40.

10:00am to 1:00pm
Dancers’ professional careers: what if ageing was an asset?

This first half, dedicated to dancers and choreographers, takes the form of experience feedback on the issue of performers’ on- and off-stage career over the years.

2:30pm to 5:00pm
The dancing body: a matter of gaze and identification?

Open to programmers and all dance-sector professionals, this round table will explore the visibility of age in dancing, accompanying the audience’s gaze and expectations, and how our relationship with age informs the creative process.
