Strike a Pose Pop up Performance

1st July 2022 - 1st July 2022

This pop up performance rolls out the red carpet and playfully explores catwalks, voguing culture and inspirational octogenarians like Vivienne Westwood, Al Pacino and Tom Jones. Following a lockdown where older adults were portrayed as vulnerable and encouraged to stay at home Strike a Pose uses playful choreography and humour to challenge stereotypes and celebrate the older body in all its forms. Strike a Pose is inspired by an idea from TC Howard and choreographed by Rachel Fullegar and Kate Cox (of Gracefool Collective) and performed by a cast of 50 non- professional older adults from across Leeds. Strike a Pose will pop up during lunch on the Friday of Ageless festival.
