If you're the only one who's still around
All your friends are gone, or under the ground.
How come you were the last
Remembering the past?
You just stand and stare
And wonder if it happened, were you ever really there?

What’s it really like to be an old man?  Entering your seventh, eighth or ninth decade?  509 Arts presents the latest iteration of Sing & Louder Sing, their latest work exploring the inner landscape of the older man and drawing on the diverse voices of ageing men from the local area.   The event will include script-in-hand readings, songs and projections  and  the launch of an accompanying publication,

Sing & Louder Sing blends testimony, music, myth, humour, photography and the science of ageing to create an event where the older man is seen in a different light – human and exposed, a synthesis of experience and fortune, fate and accident; a biological clock that is inevitably destined to stop.

“You are wondering when It’s going to happen, what’s going to happen – it’s a road you’ve got to travel alone. “ 

Sing & Louder Sing has been commissioned by Theatre in the Mill to mark the 50th anniversary of the founding of the University of Bradford.
