Silvia continues with her research and reflections on femininity and old age, dance and active aging, with a new surprising performance. After What age are you acting?, a production born within the European project “Act Your Age”, her Blitz Over60: a choral performance dance piece without time, under the form of a flash mob in a supermarket in the centre of the city of Bologna. The protagonists, a group of women over 60, without specific dance experience, who accepted the choreographer’s invitation to have fun, and put themselves in question with irony and courage. Blitz Over60 is a homage and a celebration of female beauty which doesn’t fear time, but instead acquires charm and splendour as time passes.
