The Rest of Our Lives

JO FONG and GEORGE ORANGE

We’re only at the beginning of the end. 

11th and 12th Oct Chapter, 7pm

26th Oct Ageless Festival Yorkshire Dance, Leeds 5.30pm

The Rest of Our Lives is an eclectic, spontaneous, predictable and random middle-aged decline. George and Jo have been pondering upon how it’s all going to go from here. 

Hopefully hopeful The Rest of Our Lives will probably be too long or it might be a bit sudden and far too short and the last bit is likely to be a bit crap.

Time is on our side, but life is passing us by.

Age Recommendation 14+

Created and performed by Jo Fong and George Orange 

For Jen and Alisa

Thanks to Joe Wild, Alisa Piebalga and Ed Collier for helping us in studio.

Supported by the Rural Touring Dance Initiative, Fieldwork, China Plate, The Place Theatre, Chapter and Arts Council of Wales.
