Three Shows Only!
In the small room, on whose walls reflect the past, sound the keys of a typewriter and the notes of a cello. André and Dorine are a unique elderly couple whose relationship, like many others, has fallen into neglect caused by routine. What used to awaken the passions of one another, today have become indifferent or even controversial.
In the tone of good-humor, we'll see a typewriter and cello that no longer sound in harmony, but have become weapons to disturb each other.
But an event comes to break the monotony: Alzheimer's. Devourer of memories, of memory, and of identity itself.
And so begins a re-start in the relationship between André and Dorine. A journey through memory. Remembering who they were in order not to forget who they are. Remembering how they loved in order to keep loving.
André and Dorine is a show without boundaries; told silently, through the use of movement and masks, creating a world that transcends language, intertwining humor and emotion.
Spain’s critically acclaimed Kulunka Theatre Company from the Basque region of Spain, was established in 2010 with the goal of experimenting with a variety of stage languages to produce theatre that is vibrant, contemporary, committed and connected to reality.
André & Dorine has toured in Spain, South America, Europe, Asia, and the United States, and was an award winner at the Birmingham European Theatre Festival in 2011, and at the La Habana International Theatre Festival. Those wishing to learn more about the play and the theatre company can visit www.kulunkateatro.com.
André & Dorine is being sponsored in part by QuestFest, a two-week international visual theatre festival. QuestFest features groundbreaking work from exceptional performers and companies dedicated to the use of movement, gesture, and digital media to tell stories. By stripping away the artifice of language, QuestFest builds bridges between disparate communities and cultures.
QuestFest is funded in part by the United States Department of Education, the Herbert Bearman Foundation, the John J. Leidy Foundation, VSA/MetLife Foundation, and Target.
