WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Improbable, led by Artistic Directors Phelim McDermott and Lee Simpson, bring The Eldership Project to Southbank Centre ? a work in progress for small, intimate groups on the stage of Queen Elizabeth Hall. Part installation and part performance, it is a quiet investigation into the theme of eldership. Improbable have set out on an enquiry that aims to re-imagine the role of eldership for a society that seems to think that elder means elderly, and elderly means that you're not much use to anyone. As theatre makers, Improbable follow their curiosity and make work using improvisation, ensemble and puppetry in exciting combinations. Their work is driven by an intention to focus on what's really happening in the moment. Like much of their work The Eldership Project is a live event encouraging conversation between Improbable and their audience. The Eldership Project is a Southbank Centre commission.
