A WOMEN’S VARIETY SHOW ABOUT THE FLEETINGNESS OF TIME
(NOT RECOMMENDED FOR CHILDREN UNDER 16)
Age group: Adult
Duration: 100 minutes
Our performance explores the problems of mid-life crisis from a female perspective. In the play, we will explore the mid-life crisis of women and the nature of this crisis. How do we, as women, cope with ageing? How do we relate to the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual changes that come with mid-life?
Ageing, as well as ageism, raises a number of questions in particular. How can a woman age well and with dignity? What does society expect from “ageing” women and what roles are left for a woman above 45? What is a woman’s worth if she is no longer young? If she is not as attractive? Can she accept herself in this change and face her own fears and desires? Are we up to this challenge? The questions of becoming a mature woman lead us to the great philosophical questions of existence itself: What is our main goal in this world? What is left for us? What can we still believe in?
Form and duration
With plenty of humour and no taboos we explore the crushing feeling of invisibility and other problems. The performance is a variety show, with loose dramaturgical links between etudes and musical, dance-like song interludes. The five very different female characters in the play intersect in different situations in the etudes. The play highlights the life situations of an actress, a psychologist, an accountant, a stay-at-home mother and a social worker. The etudes focus on situations in which making or delaying a decision can be life-changing for our female characters.
