BEST OF 65 celebrates aging – in life and on stage. On the occasion of his 65th birthday, the performer Angus Balbernie embarks on an entertaining journey through time: He recalls weird, comic and intense performance moments of his career and dives into the past – and 20 years of collaboration with choreographer Silke Z. With joint productions, such as the performance series “Unter Uns! Das Generationenprojekt”, the performance “machtMUT” or the dance production “DIE METABOLISTEN – STOFF WECHSELN”. The result is a performance medley that deals with aging on stage and the challenges associated with it in a natural, deeply human and sympathetic way, while at the same time celebrating life and the aging body in a dance performance context.
