Experienced older professional performers are wanted to create new theatre pieces – from dancers and singers to actors and musicians.

An initial meeting is planned for this month (January) with plans for weekly creative sessions from February leading to a performance.

Professional dancer Alex Pickford who has run outdoor dance sessions in Redcatch Park says she is looking for those in their “later career” to take part – to provide “a professional outlet for creativity.”

She explains: “This initiative will increase the visibility of older practitioners, challenge ageism and promote the value of talent and theatrical experience amongst peers.”

Sessions will take place at an accessible rehearsal space in the city, to be confirmed.
