Elixir Festival Elixir Extracts 2022

16 & 18 June

Elixir Festival
Established in 2014, the Elixir Festival returns in 2022 with Elixir Extracts 2022.

This year’s mini festival celebrates creative ageing and presents a range of workshops, films, artist talks and performances by mature performers.

The festival includes performances by acclaimed professional artists along with the opportunity for non-professional dancers to showcase their work.

Co-funded by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union as part of DANCE ON, PASS ON, DREAM ON.

The Snowman
In a snowy landscape with tall pine trees leaning in from the sides, winter figures dance in pairs – in the centre a tall snowman wraps fluffy arms around the shoulders of a young girl in white tulle as she points a foot in a ballet slipper. Around them, other pairs are in the same pose – including snowmen, penguins, and Father Christmas.
