Growing Old With You
Thu 18 & Fri 19 August, 8pm
Growing Old With You is a life-long performance project that slowly documents experiences of aging. GOWY started in 2011, as Jodie & Pete approached their 30thbirthdays. Jodie & Pete will create a new performance exploring how they age every 10 years for their rest of their lives. Over the course of a lifetime they hope to create a series of works in which they, the work and the audience all grow old together. The next performance is planned for 2021, when Jodie & Pete will celebrate their 40th birthdays, but they are revisiting the 2011 performance to help mark the 10th anniversary of Forest Fringe.
Dramaturg: Ben Francombe
