Ageless Festival Leeds

26th October 2019

Once again DANCE SIX-0 were thrilled to be chosen from over a hundred applicants to perform at this prestigious festival, which is becoming an international event. Ageless is a 2-day festival driven by a desire to shine a light on exceptional work which celebrates, challenges and deliberately disregards age. We presented Head in My Bag, a work by Liz Aggiss which is fast becoming our most well known and requested piece – pushing the boundaries and preconceptions of what’s expected of older people’s dance.

Review from On:Yorkshire Magazine  ‘… a cheeky two-fingers-up piece on ageism called ‘Head in My Bag’, presented by DANCE SIX-O, when a row of punked-up dancers tipped the contents of their handbags upside down – along with all stereotyped associations – and rammed the bags on their heads, then rocked out blindly, with gleeful, snarling abandon.’
