Vintage Humans – pilot event

Sunday 6th September at 3pm (doors open at 2.30pm) So and So Arts Club, no.6 Frederick’s Place, EC2R 8AB Tickets £10   The Equilibrium are proud to present VINTAGE HUMANS a pilot event that celebrates what we gain with age, whilst bringing generations together.   Wear, damage, dirt, repair, corrosion and decay are a large part of the language of authenticity. We give things that look old the benefit of the doubt. Age lends authority to an object. An aged artifact inveigles its way into the grand events of history. My work often borrows the shabby familiar clothes of the antique so as to lend gravitas to what it has to say. The look of age is also an important component in what we find beautiful. Grayson Perry, Tomb of the Unknown Craftsman   Why in older objects do we find beauty and importance but in older people we see lesser importance and worth?  We believe it is a privilege to grow older and that we should value our older people.   We are asking writers representing each decade from 20’s to 80’s to write a response to the Grayson Perry quote above. As with all our work, the roles must be gender balanced.  Our writers include award winning actress Louise Jameson and Archie Maddocks (Orange Tree Theatre, Lyric Hammersmith, Bush Theatre and The Royal Court).   The plays will be premiered at a festival style event as part of the Ever HopeFull Rep Season at So and So Arts Club.  The event will include a short film teaser of “Eighty What?” by Ann Queensberry, music provided by Auntie Maureen on her wind up gramophone and other vintage treasures.   Eighty What? will be screened at 4.00pm on Friday 18th September at 6 Frederick’s Place.
