In Dronninger, we meet dancers aged between 53 and 74. The eldest has been prominent in Norwegian dance for many years, and shares her experiences after taking a break of several years from the stage. Bringing the narratives of older dancers to the stage gives them a voice and a subject. Each dancer is highlighted through an alternative and symbolic interpretation, and shares her reflections through dance, video and text. Strength, humour and sensuality will provide a voice to counteract the sadness and illness that we often associate with age, and will leave an impression of experience as a positive resource and give the audience an inspiring optimism about the future.
