Elan Vital is a performance to exercise the mind, spirit and body…
A gentle warm up, an exploration of ageing, athleticism and the idea that ‘you’re never too old’.
Through her attempts to perform a gymnastic ‘back walkover’, Chris. Dugrenier tries to find out if she has left it too late.
This could be tragic or life-affirming.
This solo performance has been developed working with Dramaturg Michael Pinchbeck and Directorial eye Peter Shenton
