About Reimagining the Future - Return to Wonderland and Waiting for Dot

Exploring older age and future time through theatre

It's Alice's birthday and she's looking forward to more adventures in Wonderland, but there's no seat for her at the tea party. Why is this world of opportunities and imagination no longer open to her? How many merry unbirthdays are too many? Can she convince them to let her stay?

Dot has been an activist in the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament for decades. She is due to speak at a meeting tonight and the taxi is waiting outside. So why is she hesitating? Is activism only a young person's game?

Return to Wonderland and Waiting for Dot are two short plays devised by older adults, working with Active Inquiry, exploring issues of ageism, activism and the future in older age. They are part of the Reimagining the Future Project at the University of Stirling exploring the potential for utopian thinking to reimagine the future in older age.

We would like to invite you to join us to watch these scenes and participate in exploring the relationship between older age and the future. The event will be held on Zoom, will be part performance and part workshop, and we welcome anyone of any age to join us!

Thursday 10th June 2.30-4.30pm
Friday 11th June 10am-12
Saturday 12th June 5-7pm

Tickets are free but must be booked in advance

The performances will be recorded for research purposes and for the making of a public film about the project. If you do not wish to appear in the film you will be given the chance to opt out at the start of the session
