About the event

A True Story Of Life That They Don’t Teach You At School

When senior citizens tell their own stories about everything that happened in their sex life–from their first time up until yesterday–, us listeners catch a glimpse of that “Life” that is common in all of us. Getting older may mean more than just aging, but growing more comfortable and open to our society. Come and celebrate these different stories of life!

<Darren O’Donnell’s message>
“The older people get, the more courageous we are to accept and share our vulnerabilities. It is a courage born of enduring hardship and tragedy and understanding that vulnerability is universal and constant. Life is a bitch and then we don’t die – we keep on living and living and living as our sight, hair, muscles, joints and neurons hit the road and the people we love evaporate. This shit is not for the faint of heart. But our world doesn’t place much value on this vulnerability – displays of vulnerability tend to make people feel uncomfortable. Through learning to accept our own vulnerability, we build the courage to accept the vulnerability of others, even when their vulnerability appears to be an affront.”
– Darren O’Donnell, Artistic and Research Director
