From Massachusetts came the remarkable Young@Heart Chorus, a choir of elderly singers performing popular hits from the last five decades, to premiere End of the Road, the final part of their ‘Road’ trilogy created in collaboration with No Theater. The singers’ capacity to transfigure familiar tunes made the ordinary extraordinary and left audiences misty-eyed, simultaneously melancholy and uplifted.

‘Young@Heart are collectively emblematic of our humanity and mortality, a maverick spirit cackling and capering in the face of convention’ The Times


Commissioned by Manchester International Festival, Les Ballets C de la B (Ghent), Rotterdamse Schouwburg, St Ann’s Warehouse (New York) and UCLA Live (Los Angeles). Produced by Manchester International Festival, Young@Heart and No Theater.
