Tangled Feet met twenty years ago, aged 20. We're all about to turn 40, we've been creating theatre together for half our lives. To mark the moment, we're asking some big questions and have brought in help.

 

In Half Life, Tangled Feet are joined by a unique company of 10, 20 and 80-year-olds, to wrestle with the nature of time passing. Asking: how does our perspective change as we age? How do we cope when we don’t know what’s coming next? What do we hold onto? What do we let go?

 

Join us to find some answers, ask more questions and celebrate the wisdom we can share at any age.

 

 
Half Life has been co-commissioned by The Albany, Stockton ARC and the Gulbenkian, Canterbury.
 
 
The show premieres in October as part of the Albany’s Festival of Creative Aging, Age Against The Machine

Half Life

By Sara Templeman   Life expectancy in the UK is 80 years old. Most of Tangled Feet’s core ensemble and founding members will be turning 40 soon. It’s made us think about what life is like as you approach your expected halfway mark. Also what was it like half a life ago, and half that time again? What will it be like in another 40 years? In this intergenerational show we ask different age groups these life questions. What’s your world like? What do you care about? What’s important? What do you look forward to? What will life be like in 10, 20, 40 years time?!   Half a life ago, the founding members of Tangled Feet met at Middlesex University and embarked on a massive journey together. 10 individuals all met studying for a drama and theatre studies degree and formed the company. All of us are still involved in the company in some way. We run everything ourselves from general management, artistic direction, finance, social media and marketing, production, casting, participation, fundraising to drama-therapy projects. What is at the core of our company is the individuals who have always put in that little bit extra, harnessed new skills to evolve as an ensemble, to grow and expand. Who knew 20 years ago we would still be going?   To continue reading click 'Read the whole story' next to the date at the top.
