Scenkonst Sörmland (Sweden) in collaboration with the Baxter Theatre Centre
Following the success of I Hit the Ground Running, the first part of the collaboration between the Baxter Theatre Centre and Scenkonst Sörmland in 2013, comes the second instalment, Struck Silent. South African choreographer Ananda Fuchs once again teams with Swedish composer Tebogo Monnakgotla to create a new work of dance and theatre which looks at the responses of seniors to the ever-growing rapid pace of the global economy.
Two focus groups came together in South Africa and Sweden to talk about second lives, post-retirement and fulfilling unrealised dreams, and out of this research Struck Silent was born.
