Let’s talk about sex, baby.

Senior citizens from Glasgow are going to talk all about it: the evolution of their sexuality over the course of their lives, the current state of their romantic affairs; their challenges and pleasures. Join our panel of elders and hear the experiences of an entire lifetime as they trigger conversations, field questions, play music and dance with the audience. In our youth-obsessed culture, All the Sex I’ve Ever Had reestablishes a community of wise elders to whom we can turn for advice gleaned from their vast wealth of life expertise. The seniors have a lot to teach us, a lot to share, and show that ageing can yield a way of being in the world that is open, generous and fearless. Let’s get it on.

From Mammalian Diving Reflex, the acclaimed innovative Canadian company behind last year’s unique experience Haircuts By Children, which saw children cutting adults’ hair at a Glasgow hair salon, comes a new show exploring society’s attitudes to sex and old age.

If you are over 65 and would like to find out more about participating in this work please call Lucy Gaizely on 0141 565 1011.

“Toronto’s messiah of experimental theatre… a catalyst for imaginative absurdity” on Mammalian Diving Reflex

“It’s rare to find a company that combines social responsibility with such an entertaining capacity to shake our ideas of what theatre can be and who it might be for.”
Arches Artistic Director Jackie Wylie
