With Uoma Alpo Aaltokoski wants to take part of question about dancer’s age. Inperforming art and exceptionally in dance thereis no age variant and age is not seen on stage. Often people things that older cannot createnew. Aaltokoski wants to emphasize that itdepends on person itself. Sometimes thoughtsneed time to work.
In dance change from age affiliate strongly onmovement, because often persons movementbecome slower in older age. Slowdown is noneed to see as lower quality, but as change withnew dimensions. With life history person oftensees more connections between things, whichalso influence of being and movement.
