Ensemble is a joyous expression of togetherness and casts light on the scarcity of older artists on the professional contemporary dance stage.

Light and poignant in equal measure, the work evolved slowly over a several year process in close collaboration with three cast members in their 60s and 70s.

On a sparse and open stage, a group of five share a journey of interactions that lays bare their strengths, efforts and possibilities together. Ensemble aims to uplift and inspire with a striking physicality and to be part of a move to better reflect the diversity of age in society.
