Herr Mamma Geddon

Part of "OUT OF NOW - DANCE ON Festival"

Charlotta Öfverholm is the founder of Age on Stage, a Swedish dance project for professional dancers of 45 and over. With Age on Stage Öfverholm didn’t just start a dance company but she also developed an outreach program for (amateur) dancers of 65 and older. The first series of workshops took place in 2016, and 25 elderly people between 67 and 84 participated. The film "Herr Mamma Geddon" is a documentary about the initial 6-day workshop. It is a touching portrait of the physical and emotional experiences of the participants, and their thoughts about dance. The workshops proved that older bodies may lack flexibility, but their minds do not.
