We tend to think that from our fifties onward, it will be all downhill, part of an inevitable slow decline into old age and frailty. But why can’t the years from middle age onward be the best of your life? Jo Fong and George Orange have clocked up over 100 years between them, and in this evening, described as "a cabaret of life and near death," they prove conclusively through dancing and clowning, silly games, and deep philosophy that there is not just life in them but in us too. The trick of this show is that it enables even the most reluctant audience to access our joie de vivre, whatever our age. It’s a joyous piece, a deliciously undignified show, which arrives in London as part of the Kakilang Festival, and which reminds at every turn of the pleasures of living life to the fullest.
Hopefully hopeful, The Rest of Our Lives is a cabaret of life and near death. Join Jo and George for a night of dance, circus and games, as they present two middle-aged lives in an eclectic, spontaneous, predictable and random decline. The struggle is real. It’s the beginning of the end. But we’re still here. Jo is an old dancer, George an old clown. They are international artists with 100 years of life experience between them. Armed with a soundtrack of floor-fillers, a book of raffle tickets and a sprinkling of eco-friendly optimism. The Rest of Our Lives is a contemporary physical performance showcasing two seasoned, award-winning performers. Age Recommendation: 14+ Content warning: Contains strong language.
