It’s not how old you are, but how you are old.

Force Majeure’s The Age I’m In is a poignant, witty and revealing portrait of how we inhabit the age we’re in throughout our lives.

Woven together and brought to life by Force Majeure’s distinctive dance-theatre language, a diverse selection of Australians aged between fourteen and eighty offer astonishingly personal responses to a range of emotive issues, creating an intimate and warm-hearted snapshot of the aging process.

Under acclaimed director Kate Champion, this remarkable performance which won the award for Outstanding Performance by a Company at the 2009 Australian Dance Awards, skilfully combines audio visual technology, real-life interviews and a distinctive physical language to take a fresh and humorous look at generational clichés, family interactions and the complexity of human relationships.

This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body; the Australia International Cultural Council, an initiative of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade; Arts NSW; and The Keir Foundation.

It will blow you away because this show deals with a very human issue, and examines it in a highly sophisticated theatrical manner that is utterly charming in its life-affirming simplicity.
