Our culture tells us that aging will change us against our will, and for the worse. Internationally acclaimed longevity expert Dr. Bill Thomas argues that this is false. Inspired by AARP CEO Jo Ann Jenkins‘ recent call-to-arms for a sustained effort to “disrupt” aging, Dr. Bill Thomas is heading back on the road in 2015 with Aging: Life’s Most Dangerous Game, part of the “Age of Disruption Tour” coming to Connecticut’s Nelson Hall at Elim Park in Cheshire on April 22, 2015.

Blending myth and science, music and visuals, Dr. Thomas shows audiences how to turn the tables on “Life’s Most Dangerous Game” and how to approach aging with the skill and enthusiasm it requires.

During the performance, Dr. Thomas challenges audience members to reject ageist stereotypes and embrace the moments of life that offer the greatest risk, reward and possibility. The mixed-media performance begins with a light-hearted look at just how “crazy” our culture’s perspective on normal human aging can be and then asks: “What if?” What if we all lived in a world that saw aging not as a process of decline but rather as the entree to life’s most dangerous game?

Dr. Thomas will take audiences on an incredible journey into a new and highly disruptive understanding of age and aging that has the power to inspire positive change for members of the audience and the communities in which they live.
