Sorry, you missed this event, SIGN UP to get information on our forthcoming shows

Jo and George present two middle-aged lives in an eclectic, spontaneous, predictable and random decline.

The struggle is real.
It’s the beginning of the end.
But we’re still here

Hopefully hopeful, The Rest of Our Lives is a cabaret of life and near death. Join Jo and George for a night of dance, circus and games.

Jo is an old dancer, George an old clown. They are international artists with 100 years of life experience between them. Armed with a soundtrack of floor-fillers, a book of raffle tickets and a sprinkling of eco-friendly optimism.

"routines that are audacious. perverse and unbothered by good taste" - Dance Review

"Jo Fong is something of a legend on the UK contemporary dance scene. She’s worked with everyone, from Rosas to DV8 to Rambert, & has a reputation as a charismatic performer & a relentlessly inquiring choreographer." - The Observer

Duration: 90mins

Age Recommendation: 14+ (Contains middle-aged themes and strong language)
