Dance Tour in the exhibition “GREY IS THE NEW PINK - Moments of Age(ing)”

GREY IS THE NEW PINK reflects a new feeling for life which includes self-confident physical expression, especially as we age. Choreographer Petra Lehr and the Ü60 dance club from the Tanzplattform Rhein-Main take you on an unusual dance tour through the exhibition. Diverse facets of ageing, from love and wisdom to illness and death, are translated into performative choreographies accompanied by music by accordionist Christiane Lüder. Inspired by the topics in the exhibition and the dancers’ own personal experiences, the feelings and hopes associated with maturing and ageing are performed and represented in movement.

Petra Lehr works as a dancer, choreographer and dance instructor and is the founder of the co.lab.tanztheater (dance theater) in Frankfurt. She went to the Leonard Pitt School of Mime and Mask Theater (San Francisco), to the Martha Graham School of Contemporary Dance and the Alvin Ailey American Dance Center (New York).

Christiane Lüder studied at the Hochschule für Musik und Theater in Hannover and, among other activities, teaches at the Akademie für Tonkunst in Darmstadt. Some examples of her projects are her intense work with Tango Nuevo, performances and premieres of contemporary composers.
