All of This Could Be Yours

AAR-FUSE-All-Of-This-Could-Be-Yours-photo-by-Wild-HardtContemporary theatre company, Pony Cam is returning to Darebin as part of FUSE Festival on Tuesday 5 September with a whole new team of radical Baby Boomers presenting All of This Could Be Yours – a new work exploring age, intimacy, apologies, advice, and the dancing body.

All of This Could Be Yours is an intimate piece working with 30 seniors to create a one-day-only bespoke performance that encounters and responds to these people who are grappling with their personal and collective legacies.

Part storytelling and part choreography, works of this scale are rare in Melbourne. The ability to watch members of the community engage in sincere and silly stories about their memories and fears will be the heart of the experience.

The participants, mostly being Darebin locals, come from varying backgrounds all with a common purpose – the desire for more community arts involvement.

Anna is a mother of four and grandmother of five. She has been an Anglican priest for 30 years and when she is not looking after her husband with dementia, she enjoys community building and local-creek revegetation.

When Maggie retired, she decided to dive back into her studies at the VCA and did her Honours in Fine Art. Two years later, she gained a Post Graduate Certificate in Performance Creation – Animateuring. Now Maggie writes, makes art, and performs when she gets the chance, when she’s not busy baby-sitting her grandchildren.

All of This Could Be Yours will be an uncompromising celebration of age, encouraging an audience to think about what they long for in the memory of their lives and how they communicate their memories with other generations.

This intergenerational play is made up of compelling lies, impossible truths and provoking stories.
