The two old men in slippers heads out to a journey towards the peaks and memories of the past and lash out at the prejudices against the burden of the elderly. Hasn’t the time come to call it the strength of the elderly instead?
The dance performance ‘Blast from the Past’ instigates its audience to reflect about our contemporaries; a time where the fleeting ideal of youth is blindly acclaimed, rather than treasuring the wisdom, that is only possessed by a person with the years behind him.
Produced by Don Gnu and co-produced Bora Bora as well as Holbæk Teater.
