MADE to last & HandMADE

MADE TO LAST and HandMADE are two new dance works that revel in the legacy, capacity and endurance of mature women.

One of the world’s foremost mature dance artists, Liz Aggiss, is joined by Tasmania’s Emma Porteus to create, with Mature Artists Dance Experience (MADE), a dance theatre work that is fiery, funny and fabulous.

Living in a throw-away culture, MADE is proud to create this double bill of boutique dance – durable, high-quality, and sustainable. Handmade, and made to last.

Save the warranty? You won’t need it!

Seriously funny, and verging on anarchic, this work shows that growing older doesn’t have to be graceful, and is an extension of lives being well lived.”
