Silver Boom

Choreography: Anna Anderegg

SILVER BOOM is a performance, accompanied by a video work. It questions the relationship between urban space, gender and age. The work is interested in the emergence of a collective consciousness by celebrating experienced women in our urban landscape. The presence and representation of experienced women tend to remain hidden from the public. When and why does a woman’s body become invisible? The piece is re-enacted in several cities with the local inhabitants (women aged 60 and above), taking the form of a ten-day workshop and two public performances. The work defends the bodily presence of senior female citizens in public space: What can we learn from these knowledgeable bodies? What wisdom and stories do these women have to tell us?
