Kulunka Teatro (Spain) : 26 – 29 January 2012

https://i1.wp.com/www.nabasque.org/Astero/Kulunk4143.jpg

Uplifting and thought provoking, André and Dorine explores important themes with warmth and humour.

So, who are André and Dorine? They are an elderly couple, gently decaying from routine and neglect. But the monotony is about to be broken, by illness. Alzheimer’s is our greatest antagonist, devourer of memories, and of identity itself. André and Dorine need to remember who they were so as not to forget who they are.

Like Germany’s acclaimed Familie Floez, Kulunka Teatro has created a piece of thoroughly contemporary piece of mask theatre that transcends language barriers.

Based on a true story, Carta a D, by the Austrian philosopher, André Gorz.

André and Dorine has toured extensively in Spain, and South America, and comes to London following performances in New York. It was an award winner at the Birmingham European Theatre Festival in 2011.

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

‘Impressive and endearing… it’s easy to see how André and Dorine win audiences.’ (Total Theatre)
