If there’s one thing that women around the world have in common it’s worrying about growing old. But the women taking part in a new dance, Gila, by Israeli choreographer, Galit Liss, are breaking that stigma one dance move at a time.
The show, which has been seen across Israel, encompasses dance, acting, video, music, humor and life stories to show audiences that growing old can also mean growing young.
Liss put together the show two years ago, after interviewing elderly women and discovering the beauty of old age. “I feel that this piece is speaking about life, and not about old age,” she says. “It’s all about how you choose to live your life. Old age could be a beginning not an end.”
