There is another chance to see the fabulous dance production
Dancing in the Third Act, which debuted in Annapolis Royal several weeks ago .
The dance, featuring local performers, explored aging in profound ways that brought sold-out audiences in Annapolis to tears, to pin-drop silence and to laughter.
The performance is for one night only at Th’YARK Playhouse in Yarmouth, NS.
Saturday October 5th at 7:30. All seats are $15.
Watch “Private Moments” and “Roadkill” excerpts from the premiere performance of “Dancing in the Third Act” with The Company of Angels directed by Randy Glynn.
As the saying goes, “Old age is not for sissies”, and Glynn’s powerful and thoroughly engaging piece is certainly proof of that! Under the guidance of the award –winning Canadian choreographer, Randy Glynn, working with 12 performers – all untrained seniors ranging in age from 60 to 75 – he has created a visually dynamic full-length work that is a poignant, dramatic and powerful look at the ups and downs (literally) of aging. 12 untrained seniors bring their indefatigable strength and endurance to an intimate and playful piece. It’s also quirky and refreshingly upbeat. Two sold-out evenings and one packed matinee make “Dancing in the Third Act” the most successful dance event for the Annapolis Royal venue Kings Theatre
