Still, Life: Women of the Bold New Old with Tales to Tell
A collection of short, spoken-word theatrical pieces—dramatic, funny, poignant and real—portraying forces that shaped today’s older women, experiences that affect them today, and visions they hold for the future. Developed through interviews, storytelling and workshops, culminating in this performance event. Enhanced by projected imagery and original photography. Performed by women actors who are all over the age of 60.
