The theatre and dance season is continuing at the Junction in Cambridge with a thought-provoking performance about growing older.

Once Upon A Time, showing at the venue on September 23, is a considered and passionate story told through the bodies of professional ballet dancer Alexandra Pickford, choreographer and dancer Caroline Lamb, and trapeze artist Mike Wright, all aged over 65.

At once a celebration of and a provocation on our relationship with ageing, the dance theatre performance reveals how the passage of time affects our skin, muscles, and identity.

Inspired by Jean Amery’s book On Ageing: Revolt and Resignation, director Agnieszka Blonska has created a poetic piece focusing on the life and work of three physical performers, revealing their individual stories and letting us into the joy, pain, beauty and strength of older age.
