DetailsEstablished in 2014, the Elixir Festival is a unique event celebrating lifelong creativity and the contribution of older artists. It was set up to recognise the contribution that older artists make, challenge assumptions about what older people can and want to do, throw a spotlight on the diversity of dance practice and raise questions about what is next for the sector. KnowBody; A lifetime of experiences is an evening of work created as part of Sadler's Wells' Elixir Festival. The programme features the legendary artists Mats Ek and Ana Laguna, Sadler's Wells' Company of Elders performing a restaged excerpt from Hofesh Shechter's In your rooms and a new commission performed by a group of former professional dancers, some of whom are returning to the stage after twenty years or more. From the beauty and power of a single gesture to the juxtaposition of electronic music and contemporary choreography performed by older dancers, KnowBody will challenge preconceptions and present contemporary dance illuminated by a lifetime of experience.
