Growing Old With You

Thu 18 & Fri 19 August, 8pm
Reserve seats

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


Growing Old With You was been developed through support from Arts Council England, The Showroom (University of Chichester) and Ferment at the Bristol Old Vic. Research and Development with the support of BAC, South Hill Park, and Forest Fringe.


Search Party is the collaboration of live artists Jodie Hawkes & Pete Phillips. Search Party’s work has playfully explored ideas of sport, the family and the relationship between people and places. Since 2005 Search Party have created performances for venues and festivals throughout the UK and internationally. Jodie & Pete are both lecturers in Theatre at the University of Chichester.
