Romania's Passé-Partout

TIX & INFO»

Making their Baltimore debut a duo of actors from Romania's accomplished Passé-Partout, DP Theatre dispenses with spoken language in Two of Us. They use acting, physical movement, a varied dance vocabulary (tango, tap), martial arts, and clever use of minimal theatrical sets to tell a vibrant love story that is rich in both dark nuance and frothing whimsy.

Founded in 1999 by Romanian actor/director Dan Puric, Passé-Partout is widely respected in the vibrant Eastern European theater scene for pioneering performance that doesn't rely on spoken language and so transcends nationalistic boundaries.
