It’s a fact: Age is terrifying. We are programmed to think that life just gets worse and worse. Adverts of older people staring at a phone covered in cobwebs fill us with fear: old age = loneliness.
In fact, people can be lonely at any age. You can have 1000 friends on Facebook and not have one real friend. I’M ALIVE is Bolder Voice’s 6th music video and takes a different view of older age.
Bolder Voices are a campaigning choir who sing original songs about the politics of age. We perform in theatres, for conferences, in supermarkets and care homes.
