Part performance, part gym session, Chris Dugrenier's playful solo show looks not at Olympic athletes, but at the rest of us - who will never run the 100 meters or race around the velodrome. How do we accept the loss of our athletic abilities, the end of our sporting dreams? Through her attempt to perform the "back walkover" gymnastic move, Chris tests the capacity of her own mind and body, and explores the cliche "you're never too old..." Chris Dugrenier is a French artist and performer who works on the periphery of performance and dance. She has collaborated extensively with Stan's Cafe and 30Bird Productions. Elan Vital was developed as part of CPT's Starting Blocks programme 2012.Performers Chris Dugrenier.
