ANDRÉ & DORINE
From September 13 to September 16
The Majoric S. Deane Little Theater
A poignant depiction of love and aging disrupted by Alzheimer's disease. Performed by Spain's critically acclaimed Kulunka Theatre Company, it tells the story of an elderly couple -André with his typewriter, Dorine with her cello- and how they relive and reinvent their love together as the disease becomes a permanent part of their relationship.
"In our goal of creating a show without boundaries, our desire is to find a language that transcends the word. A language that thrills and entertains," said Garbiñe Insausti, a member of the company. "To achieve this, we rely primarily on a theatre of gestures, in which masks act as a bridge to another world of a poetic visual [experience]. Our masks, of deep features, so expressive, so full of life, open the doors of imagination and bring us to a universe in which everything is possible."
Three actors portray more than 15 different characters through the play, whose story is told through gesture and movement, with no spoken dialogue. The story revolves around André, turning to his typewriter to relive and remember his life with Dorine as her mind slips away -remembering who they were in order to not forget who they are now.
