The mission is for women between 40 and 80 to form an East Finchley based free dance company comprised of more than 40 dancers. The company is a mix of desire to dance and fitness training but feeds on life experience. The include dancers and ex-dancers and brave women with less than 3 years dance training that decide to use their body as a means of communication. 10x4x2 brings something new to the community stage; a very large group of women based in north london who collectively embrace their authority, humor, to leave their hearts and life moments on the stage at every performance/videoclip as they experience the difficult age of menopause and eventually replace it with a different sense of beauty.
‘Women Found Alone Eaten by Cats’ is an eclectic collection of scenes from women’s lives with interchanging styles of dance to capture our experiences and ultimately tell our story. These stories ‘hang’ on women’s relationship to time, and play on the ambiguity of the meaning of –‘time’, time as in literal time the ‘body clock’, and ‘time’ as in women in the past. Each scene is played out in conflict with time, and portrays time as the marker by which we are always judged, weighed and checked against lovers, careers, life and beauty. Beauty in particular and the belief that with the loss of youth comes a loss of beauty is what this ‘Dance’ is about, it sets out to ‘make fun’ of time culminating in the final scene with the clear message that we no longer believe that we become invisible with age as we did in the past, but believe with age comes grace and a different sense of beauty and style that we enjoy embracing and sharing with our friends, this ‘ensemble’ invites all women to enjoy being beautiful always.
The aim of this dance company is to inspire and engage as many women over 40 as possible with the joy of dance whether dancer or audience. 10x4x2 Dance Company believes to work with dance artists after 40 in the community. We believe in programs that work to improve society through community service therefore we cultivate art education and appreciation through quality dance education, workshops and master classes. The company was founded with the mission to create dancework and serve our community. When volunteering, we are particularly interested in long-term partnerships with community based organizations.
