Theatre Project is thrilled to welcome Spain's Kulunka Teatro to Baltimore, as they present their beautiful production of André and Dorine.

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: Alzheimers. 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.

André & Dorine is being sponsored in part by QuestFest, a two-week international visual theatre festival.
