“The Oldest Old” John Leland, The New York Times

I have been following this series: https://www.nytimes.com/2015/06/07/nyregion/a-group-portrait-of-new-yorks-oldest-old.html since its inception almost four years ago. If you have not, I urge you you to do so. The stories offer hope, love, and an upclose personal look at six varied persons’ aging process tinged with a great deal of poignancy. Mr. Leland writes with kindness and respect for each individual. I welcome the opportunity to chat with you about this.

Stray Dog Silver Senior Theatre Auditions Next Week

Silver Stage Senior Theatre

The Silver Stage Senior Theatre program by Stray Dog Theatre presents an annual production, featuring a cast of actors exclusively over the age of 55 years old and a production team largely composed of professional and pre-professional young adult artists. The next production will be William Shakespeare’s Macbeth in May 2019. Silver Stage hopes to provide the experience of theatre to older adults, regardless of ability, age, experience, or background, and create a network of mature performers who can become an active and vibrant part of our theatre community for years to come.

Auditions for Macbeth will be held Saturday, January 12, 2019.  As always, Stray Dog Theatre honors diversity and non-traditional casting practices.

No experience is necessary! Whether you’re a seasoned actor or a first timer, we want to work with you. Anyone aged 55 and over who can provide their own transportation to and from rehearsals and performances and are interested in theatre can audition!

“Seeing the World, The Power of Aging Creatively: 8 Artists Over 80.”

 

Dealers, curators and gallerists are in intense competition to find the next breakout star, usually the younger the better, with contests abounding for emerging artists. But what happens when an artist passes the prime of their youth, but not the prime of their creativity? Wikipedia lists an astounding 127 names of visual artists worldwide that produced work up to the age 100 or beyond. These eight inspirational artists have found the motivation to create, every day, year after year, into their eighth decade or further, and are still inventing new ways to see the world.~Cynthia Close, Art and Object.com

Read on through the link below…this makes me proud of where I am in life and what I hope to have to look forward to. You, too?
