Aging and Connecting, Tonight and Tomorrow at Flashpoint

Nancy Havlik, a Washington-based choreographer in her 60s, appreciates the upside of aging. "I feel much more freedom with age," she said. "I don't feel like I have to prove anything, and I'm caring less and less what category I'm in, whether it's dance or theater." This liberation from labels allows her to try creative productions involving both the speaking aspect of theater mixed with the choreography and improvisation of dance performances, all while exploring subjects like loss in life. And while even she is not sure which end of the spectrum she falls on, anyone who made it out to her troupe's performance can agree her newfound freedom makes for some great entertainment.
