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. Blending myth and science, live music and visuals, Dr. Bill Thomas’ Changing Aging Tour is a modern day American Chautauqua barnstorming the country in a rock n’ roll tour bus to bring communities a new and highly disruptive understanding of aging.

Drawing on ancient wisdom and scientific breakthroughs, the Changing Aging Tour challenges audience members to reject ageist stereotypes and embrace the moments of life that offer the greatest risk, reward and possibility. The Tour includes two non-fiction theater performances as well as an immersive lobby experience. In the afternoon Disrupt Dementia features music and stories from Samite, Nate Silas Richardson and Namarah McCall and co-hosts Dr. Jennifer Carson and Kyrié Carpenter. The evening performance is Dr. Thomas’ signature show Aging: Life’s Most Dangerous Game with musician Nate Silas Richardson.

“Aging can be reimagined as a vivid and enlivening process that presents us with extraordinary risks, and rewards,” Dr. Thomas says. “So, how are we supposed to play this most dangerous of all games? What do winning and losing look like?”

Through the performances you will explore:

  • The difference between truth and illusion when it comes to aging.

  • Effective insights for better health & wellbeing gained from the wisdom of elders.

  • Exciting possibilities for every stage of your life

  • Illuminating insights on what elders — even those living with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease — can teach us about creating kind and inclusive communities.

  • Your important role as an elder or elder-in-training.
