Elixir Extracts 2022 Programme B
Elixir Extracts 2022 is our mini festival that celebrates creative ageing and presents a range of performances by mature performers. The festival includes performances by acclaimed professional artists along with the opportunity for non-professional dancers to showcase their work.
This afternoon performance celebrates the joy that dancing has on people’s lives, whatever age you may be. The showcase will feature performances by groups from the UK and beyond, including Sadler’s Wells’ Company of Elders, Dance On Lab from Berlin, as well as local community groups from north and east London.
Dance On Lab, a group of mature non-professional dancers based in Berlin, present Tideland. Working together since 2016, they are part of the DANCE ON initiative that values age in dance. This performance reminds us that only very special images remain in us, in our bodies and our memories. In Tideland, they go in search of the common and individual understanding of things.
