Hopefully hopeful, The Rest of Our Lives is a joyful dose of dance, theatre, circus and games. A cabaret of life and near death. Two middle-aged lives in an eclectic, spontaneous, predictable and random decline.
Jo is an old dancer, George an old clown. International artists with 100 years of life experience between them, armed with a soundtrack of floor-fillers, a book of raffle tickets and a sprinkling of eco-friendly optimism. Joyful, celebratory and hilarious.
The struggle is real.
It’s the beginning of the end.
But we’re still here.
About Jo Fong
Jo’s creative work reflects the need in these times for people to come together. Her artistic practice is an evolving, collaborative approach which puts ideas around belonging or forming community in the forefront. She has been commissioned and performed work in festivals and venues all over the world.
About George Orange
George Orange is a performance artist, circus performer, outdoor theatre maker, former mascot, ex drag performer, creator of Mary Bijou Cabaret, circus director, and physical theatre teacher. But most of all, and without a doubt, he is a clown.
Life is too short not to live like this.
Fong and Orange have found a blueprint for happily living the rest of our lives.
Whatever your age, it will make you very happy indeed

I left this show feeling uplifted and hopeful that there is much more to come.
