R-AGE

Chisenhale Dance Collaboration Between Generations Commission

R-AGE, created by Jacky Lansley and Grace Nicol, is a conversation through dance, image and performance between a ‘young’ and ‘older’ woman. Together they explore the power of women working across generations and examine questions about women and age, including those frustrating generalisations which frame women as never being the right age.

Drawing on their working relationship and friendship over the last five years, the artists have created a cross-disciplinary performance score which engages audiences in a series of challenging, humorous and radical questions about women, power and art.

Jacky and Grace consider their artistic dialogue as highly topical in a polarised Brexit Britain, in which conservative driven austerity has divided generations. Through performance, they  explore finding a common and intergenerational language that can contribute to positive collective action around these issues, within the arts and beyond.  

R-AGE was performed at the Collaboration Between Generations Showcase at Chisenhale Dance Space on December 8th, 2018

R-AGE was commissioned by Chisenhale Dance Space supported by The Choreographer’s Gallery Trust and Arts Council England.
