Talkin’ ’bout my generation


What it means to be an older person in the UK today.

Talkin’ ‘bout my Generation is a new theatre production devised to explore what it means to be an older person in today’s society. The piece has been devised by participants on the CINAGE Live performing arts course (ages ranging from 62-89 years), under the guidance of Leeds Beckett University’s senior performance academic Teresa Brayshaw.

Talkin’ ‘bout my Generation has featured at a number of international arts events, including within a series of provocations at The Richard Demarco Archive, Edinburgh (2018), The Cornerstone Festival – Liverpool Hope University (2018) and the 8th conference of the ESREA Network ‘ELOA IDENTITY, VOICE, CREATIVITY, ACTION!’ (2017).

As official contributors to this year’s Leeds International Festival programme, the CINAGE: Live group will reshape Talkin’ ‘bout my Generation responding to the wider concerns of performers and audience members alike.
