The Old Men Dancing
Wiser and Still Gorgeous (Do Not Resuscitate)
Peterborough’s Old Men Dancing was formed in 2002 by a group of men who share an interest in creating movement-based performance. With an average age of over 50, these late-blooming dancers have much to give and speak to as men of experience, wisdom and folly. For this program they are working with the professional dance company Atlas Moves Watching on a project that will see them performing 4 works by 4 great Canadian choreographers: Marie-Josée Chartier, Allan Kaeja, D. A. Hoskins and Atlas Moves Watching artistic director Bill James. This is sure to be a remarkable evening of dance from a company that is unique in Canada.
