SeniorsDANCE Company presents
HUNTERS AND GATHERERS
Choreographer: Susan Jordan

Driven by the fascinating global phenomenon of ‘creative aging’, a collection of seniors will be dancing their way to health and happiness in a very special dance show. Hunters and Gatherers will play in central Auckland supermarkets for FREE, to unsuspecting shoppers on the 24th and 26th of April.

Combining social commentary with a love for life, Hunters and Gatherers will be a brazen performance inside central supermarkets. With a focus on sharing nuggets of wisdom while having fun, the show will humorously reflect on how contemporary society acquires its food, often causing environmental chaos.

The six dancers involved in this light-hearted and refreshing 7-minute public performance clock in with an average age of 75. Wielding bows and arrows, fishing lines, and unique dance moves, this unusual troupe are sure to surprise local shoppers.

There’s no getting around the fact that we all age. The good news is that aging creatively — through the arts — holds the promise of enjoying and embracing the process. ‘Creative aging’ is a fascinating approach to growing old that is sweeping the globe, with participant groups popping up throughout the UK, Japan and Australia.  Elderly folk who get involved in the arts are less likely to get ill and injured, as well as having an increased overall quality of life.
