After its premiere at Theatre Bristol last year, Once Upon A Time returns for a UK tour. Agnieszka Błońska's performance is a show about ageing and the passing of time, told through the extraordinary bodies of two dancers and one trapeze artist, all aged over 65. At once a celebration of, and a provocation on our relationship with ageing, this dance-theatre performance reveals how time marks its inevitable course through our skin, our muscles, our identity.

Inspired by Jean Amery’s book On Ageing: Revolt and Resignation, Agnieszka Blońska has created a poetic piece focusing on the life and work of three physical performers, revealing their individual stories and letting us into the joy, pain, beauty and strength of older age.
