Seminars and audience talks Age on stage
A seminar about the relevance of and attitudes on age in the society, the labor market, and culture in general, and specifically about age on stage as a dancer, performer and creator. A blind spot in the current cultural debate that the seminar wants to illuminate. The interest from related organisations abroad is great, which provides the seminar more depth and knowledge.
