AGE was commissioned and presented by the 2014 New Zealand Festival.
“The movement is astonishing and the dancers are truly amazing…This work, you have to
think about it, and you have to grapple with it …On that level it’s the kind of
contemporary dance work that many of us crave and very rarely get”. Radio New Zealand
“Age by Ross McCormack signalled the arrival of a fresh New Zealand dance voice.
His company, Muscle Mouth, brought together a stellar cast of seven performers to create
a convincing portrayal of family members encountering the travails of life through the eyes
of three generations …Age was a clever and endearing work and bodes well for McCormack
and his new company”. The Listener
