Ages and ageing in applied and social theatre

Event Date March 25, 2017 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.

Location – ATRiuM, University of South Wales

TaPRA Applied and Social Theatre Working Group

The Theatre and Performance Research Association are holding an event at USW Cardiff Campus later this month looking at ages and ageing in applied and social theatre.

The following themes will be explored during the event:

  • Reflections on practices that propose creative ways of exploring age (cultural, social or political)
  • Theatre and performance at, for, or with, different ages and life stages.
  • The interrelationship between age and applied theatre practice, particularly in challenging age as a normative category and interrogating stereotypes of age and ageing.

The event will include presentations by a number of invited presenters:

Sheila McCormick – Applied Theatre: Creative Ageing, London: Methuen, (Forthcoming, 2017)
Gary Anderson: On children and age(s), The Institute for the Art and Practice of Dissent at Home
David Grant and Jenny Elliot – Creative ageing and nursing

For the full schedule of the event, please see here.

Attendance at the event is free to TaPRA members, and £10 for non-members. Spaces can be booked online.
