SilverAction 3

Sunday 3rd February saw hundreds of women around 60 years old share their stories with a live audience as they ‘performed’ their conversations as part of Suzanne Lacy’s ‘Silver Action’ project.

Typists typed live feeds of individuals’ stories which appeared on a projected screen behind them in real time as they spoke, allowing the audience to read along with them. Meanwhile, groups of four at yellow square tables discussed key questions around being a women today, their challenges, influences, memories and ambitions as well as their interest and experience of activism and women’s rights.

Fascinating stories and very personal moments were shared across the tables, as well as by audience members of all ages who were invited to listen in. Our clients thoroughly enjoyed being part of an artwork, making new friends and opening up to new people throughout the afternoon. Lacy put older women centre stage, and opened eyes to the wealth of knowledge, experience and fantastic inspiration which that can provide.
