Montreal-based theatre company reimagines the aging process with its production of Victoria. Performances in Fredericton and Saint John in February.
Montreal-based Dulcinea Langfelder & Co brings its production of Victoria to New Brunswick in February with performances in Saint John and Fredericton.
Based on an original idea and texts by playwright Charles Fariala and performed by Dulcinea Langfelder, Victoria is a stage production that deals with issues of illness and loss of control through the memories of an elderly wheelchair-bound woman who suffers from Alzheimers.
Victoria is a production that addresses old age, vulnerability, loss and death without being morbid, frightening or depressing. The story follows Victoria, a woman with dementia who has lost her memory, and in turn has lost control over her life.
She is a shadow of herself, adopting comic and dramatic situations as her imagination dictates. Her wheelchair acts as her rocking chair, her prison, her tango partner and her flying chariot. Full of humour and compassion, Victoria will dazzle audiences and heal the soul.
Created in 1999, Victoria has been performed for audiences around the world on stages in Japan, Scotland, Mexico, Holland, France and across Canada.
The Fredericton performance includes a post-performance talkback with Dulcinea Langfelder.
