Spain's celebrated Kulunka Teatro returns to L.A. with magical Andre & Dorine
If you missed it before, here's your chance: Spain's celebrated Kulunka Teatro returns to the Los Angeles Theatre Center with Andre & Dorine, the company's poignant depiction of love and aging disrupted by Alzheimer's. This Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle award-winning production tells the story of an elderly couple-Andre 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. Three actors portray more than 15 different characters, telling the story with masks, gesture and movement, with no spoken dialogue.
Performed by the Internationally-Acclaimed Kulunka Teatro (which received the Spanish equivalent of a Tony Award for Best Play in 2018), this non-verbal theatre piece uses movement, puppetry, and mask to celebrate the shared lives of a pair of artists - Andre with his typewriter, Dorine with her Cello - and how they relive and reinvent their love together as Alzheimer's becomes a permanent part of their relationship.
