Concept and Direction by Jade Travers

An elderly woman dances like there is no tomorrow..

Age is seemingly something that happens to us in spite of ourselves, given the virtuosity and athleticism that youth once possessed, this could set the stage for either nostalgia or frustration, as inner-selves demand shapes and shifts that more worldly forms can no longer quite manage.
