This story starts with a community, called Dama, that consists of millions of middle age Chinese women that dance in public squares or parks in the cities. Six Damas are the protagonists: born in the 50s and 60s of the last century, they belong to a generation that was marked by the idea and reality of collectivity that was heavily Socialist in nature. They have no professional dancing experience, but only a piece of glorious memory about dancing, back in the time of the Cultural Revolution. This memory defines their understanding of “dance” and shapes their “dance” that is haunting the nation again today. 50 / 60 invites Dama to share and express their collective memory through dancing. The performance is part of VIE Festival 2016 programme.
