REMINDER | Private View @ Oh! Oxford House Tonight

Irreversible Materiality is a collaboration between photographer Tracey Fahy and the Senior Dancers (age 60+) at Green Candle Dance Company based in Bethnal Green, London. Founded in 1987, by Fergus Early, with a brief to bring dance; as practice and performance to as wide a cross-section of the community as possible.

Combining hip-hop dance, photography and sound images (influenced by Japanese avant-garde culture of the late 1960s – in particular Butoh dance, which was often performed by older dancers) to create a unique visual language.

Drop it like it’s GC!

This work forms the beginnings of a documentary project exploring the potential impact of dance among people in their Third Age. Breaking away from traditional dance projects with the elderly; challenging stereotypes of older peoples capabilities and creating a more optimistic view of ageing in our society.
