Multiple Show Times
Join us for a comedic, family-friendly piece of innovative theatre using lo-fi FX, miniature vehicles, puppetry, video, deadpan mime and ingeniously simple physical recreations of film language. Don’t miss this tender portrait of humanity coming to Tornabene Theatre!
Dimanche, a humorous and magical play, features two stories to paint a portrait of mankind totally out of step with climate catastrophes swirling around them. Adventure with a team of wildlife reporters as they travel the world to document the last living species. And spend a quiet Sunday afternoon with a family paying no attention to trembling walls and lashing rain as they absurdly try to preserve their daily life.
Between dreamlike fiction and factual reality, Dimanche observes the ingenuity and stubbornness of humans as they try to preserve their day-to-day habits, going to absurd extremes to keep up a sense of normalcy despite the chaos of an ecological collapse. Great for all ages, this production weaves together lo-fi effects, video, puppetry, and clowning in a wondrous work of physical theater!
