Age, a state of mind?
Im not a big TV watcher but who doesnt love the ABC series You Can’t Ask That, a program that allows viewers to put to different groups in society the awkward and inappropriate questions that they have been too afraid to ask. A group of Australian Centenarians line up to answer the tough questions.
One of the Centenarians is Eileen Kramer, born in 1914, Eileen was a self-dubbed ‘later bloomer’ into the world of dance. Performing with the Bodenwieser Ballet, Australia’s first modern dance company, Eileen travelled the world building her remarkable career as a writer, dancer, painter, costume designer and choreographer.
Today, despite the ways in which some may assume a 103 year old spends her days, Eileen’s long creative career is continuing, with multiple projects underway.
Eileen is an ambassador for the Arts Health Institute, at 103 she is savvy, smart, an award winning and a globe-trotting dancer. She is slamming stereotypes by answering questions such as ‘why aren’t you dead yet?’ and ‘when did you last have sex?’
You can catch it on ABC's IVIEW or to read more about Eileen’s incredible life and career when you visit this link.
