Here? You. Aye … you. Come closer. I know something. And I think it’s going to change things. Like change everything. I promised not to tell anyone but… They’ve figured it out. They figured out how we can live forever. You up for it?
Stanford University. California, USA: Scientists pump the blood of young mice into old mice. The old mice get faster, stronger, healthier. The young mice are left empty, drained, used-up.
The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, Glasgow, Scotland: Our young company ask: – How long is it until old humans start taking our blood?
The Gaiety’s Young Theatre Company and the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland’s Young Company will work with, and to talk to, groups of elderly people in Glasgow and Ayrshire to create an original performance. Part theatre-show, part live-experiment, we respond to how our communities are divided by age and aim to tackle ageist stereotypes. We’ll highlight how intergenerational conversations and activity can enlighten, inform and create a more tolerant society.
Written and devised by Royal Conservatoire of Scotland's Young Company in collaboration with The Ayr Gaiety’s Young Theatre Company. Directed by Robbie Gordon.
Expect laughs, tunes and young blood.
