“Victoria (…) is like a hug that whispers “courage”. (…) it flies a hugely uplifting flag for life, for dreams and for caring.”
Mary Brennan, The Herald, Edinburgh, Scotland, 2007
Victoria is based on an original idea and texts by Charles Fariala, a production of Dulcinea Langfelder & Co.
In the work Victoria, Montreal’s acclaimed Dulcinea Langfelder is all at once an actor, dancer, mime and storyteller, while incorporating physical theatre, music, multi-media.
Victoria is a wheelchair-bound 90 year-old suffering from the loss of memory, autonomy and just about everything else, Langfelder melds tragedy with humour. This multi-disciplinary work dazzles audiences with its humour and compassion while addressing old age, vulnerability, loss and death. She and her creative team sought to open dialogues and change attitudes towards old age, others’ as well as our own. Victoria proposes a positive image and reassures people who feel excluded, be it by aging, solitude, illness, handicap… socially or politically.
An uplifting affirmation for caregivers and family members. A valuable exploration of aging today.
