Coming of Age
Coming of Age_Grafik HP
© Jan Grygoriew

Age is just a number – yet there is no getting around aging. In the midst of debates about the climate movement, identity politics, and body image, it is time to renegotiate long-established generational contracts. Not only has the recent pandemic history shown that questions of responsibility and solidarity need to be revisited. 
The performance festival COMING OF AGE, which will take place from September 15 to November 7 at Sophiensæle, is dedicated to various facets of aging in society - and looks at the different challenges of a phenomenon that affects us all.
