‘Impressive and endearing...’

Total Theatre, UK

 

‘Filled with tenderness, nostalgia and love, it provoked deeply felt emotions.  It was hard to keep back tears.’

El Mundo, Spain

 

‘...The piece is full of poetry, beautiful compositions, endearing moments and delightful comedy.’

Modernícolas Cultural Magazine, Spain

 

Time machine to rewind love

 

André and Dorine live just like many old couples do, gently decaying from routine and neglect.  However, the coming of Alzheimer’s breaks the monotony, and so begins a fresh start in their relationship, a journey through memory.  They need to remember who they were, so as not to forget who they are.  Remember how they loved in order to keep loving each other.  André and Dorine is a poetic piece of mask and mime theatre, exploring important themes with warmth and humour.  It has been performed more than 400 times in 25 countries during the last seven years, such as the South America, the United States, the United Kingdom and Russia, not to mention its performances in the Edinburgh Fringe Showcase 2012 and 2014 in the Mainland, and in the Taipei Arts Festival 2013.

 

With post-performance talk on 22.6 (Conducted in Spanish with English Interpretation)

 

Recommended for ages 12 and above

 

Running time of each performance is about 1 hour and 25 minutes without intermission.

 

‘From Puppets to Humans’ Series: André and Dorine by Kulunka Theatre Company (Spain)

Kulunka Theatre Company was established in Spain in 2010, stemming from experimenting with different possible stage languages and aiming to make theatre accessible to the wide public and connect to reality.  Its goal is to create a show without boundaries and find a language that thrills and entertains the audience.  It relies on a theatre of gestures, using masks as a bridge to another world of a poetic visual endearing.  Its masks, of deep features, so expressive, so full of life, open the doors of imagination and bring a universe in which everything is possible.
