The 40 minutes on the 2nd day: a lecture-demonstration titled ''Dance, a lifelong affair'', the piece and the process'.

'Dance, a lifelong affair' is a dance piece for 7 dancers aged 10, 11, 12, 68, 72, 78 made by Els van Buren-Walvis.

Abstract of the piece:

Two duets, a trio, a quartet and a dance with the whole group show the life span of a passion for dance.

A senior man, very skilled in Rumanian folk dance with boys following in his footsteps.

A senior woman and a girl mirrorring each other or themselves?

A senior man remembering movements from his childhood, the children performing them.

And finally everybody swinging.

After a show on DVD of the piece Els will talk about the process.

The talking will be accompanied by DVD images.
