ABOUT THE PLAY

André & Dorine is a poignant depiction of the enduring love between an elderly couple as their lives are disrupted, but not overcome, by dementia.

This non-verbal theatre piece uses movement, puppetry, and mask to celebrate the shared lives of a pair of artists – André 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.

The play is a rollercoaster ride of laughter and tears, a silent maelstrom of emotions conveyed through masks that masterfully navigates between drama and comedy, life and death, love and oblivion.

A show without borders which, in 10 years, has been performed in over 30 countries worldwide.

LOVE AND FORGETFULNESS. Kulunka takes the audience from one emotional extreme to the other, provoking helpless laughter one minute and a lump in your throat the next.  It’s been years since I have felt anything remotely similar.”

André and Dorine is a story about Alzheimer's, but mostly it's a story about overcoming, struggle and love.

Cultural Magazine Modernícolas

These actors should be studied minutely by anyone interested in learning how to display emotion and idea before an audience.

Los Angeles Stage & Cinema

I do not know to which wonderful theatrical genre belongs 'André and Dorine', but I know that it causes the emotion of a real masterpiece.

Diary: La Rioja

Filled with tenderness, nostalgia and love, it provoked deeply felt emotions. It was hard to keep back tears.

El Mundo

If this theater piece were the first thing alien civilizations saw of our species, it would introduce us more accurately than any speech or song I can imagine.

Los Angeles Stage & Cinema

Impressive and endearing...it’s easy to see how André & Dorine win audiences.
