When did you first realise that your possibilities were finite? Was this a revelation or did it slowly creep upon you? Then later on, when the fashion trends of your teenage years reappear, you become your own point of reference and then you know that you are no longer young.
Considering the absurd “New-” and the constant “Upcoming” of our society with a simultaneous demographic shift towards retirement age, Doris Stelzer in her new work, takes a look at the time in-between. In search of the moment of "being no longer young" (albeit far from being old) and how people deal with that in their own ways, she holds talks, asks questions and listens. Driven by curiosity, she collects opinions, moods, and personal experiences; she examines clichés and searches for the so-called serenity.
or ever young explores an experiential realm that juxtaposes the real dancer body with the personally perceived experience and through this process questions the societal body image of growing old.
