Seniors and Caregivers Day 2017

In 2016, in the initial tour of the Victoria Project, Dulcinea Langfelder & Co created for the first time an event around the play, Victoria, to pay tribute to seniors and persons experiencing loss of autonomy, and to those who care for them: family and professional caregivers. On Thursday, December 7th, Seniors and Caregivers Day returns for its second edition, this time at the Notre-Dame-de-Grâce Cultural Centre in Montreal, helping us spread Victoria’s message of hope further in the community.

On the agenda of activities for this day are two performances of Victoria, in French at 1:30 pm with Anne Sabourin and in English at 7:30 pm with Dulcinea Langfelder; a roundtable discussion, ‘Caring for seniors... and caregivers’, with several distinguished speakers; aworkshop, ‘Concilier travail, famille et rôle de proche aidant : outils et ressources pour équilibrer le quotidian’, led by Anne-Laure Marcadet; a photo exhibit‘Regard-e-moi’, on the iconographic representation of the aging woman, by the artists Mélissa Giguère and Frédérique Dubé; and apost-show discussion in the evening. Also throughout the day, various community organisations will be holding information booths in the lobby of the Maison de la culture, presenting the available support services for seniors and caregivers in the Notre-Dame-de-Grâce borough.
Centered on a play that has moved audiences around the world for 18 years, this event aims to bring us together around issues that concern us all.

All activities are free, including tickets for both presentations of the play.





Victoria Canadian Tour


For the past two months, the company’s traveled on countless Canadian roads and met new audiences.
Our 90 year old heroine, who hasn’t aged, will be traveling to Ontario, Alberta, British Columbia, Quebec, Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick, drawing us into her funny and surprising imagination.

Confidences sur l’oreiller Tour
"She opens her world to us with audacity. Between her dreams where she fantasizes about former US President Barack Obama and her most absurd dreams, we don’t want to miss a single second. Langfelder exploits the stage all to herself, supported by multimedia projections. The result is surprising, funny and amusing. Her energy is unlike any other!"

Pillow Talk - An essay on dreaming ... a journey to the border between the conscious and the unconscious; Dulcinea’s most intimate work to date.
This new creation was presented this fall in its French version in Ste-Foy (a first co-production between La Rotonde Choreographic Art Centre and the Salle Albert-Rousseau), Baie-Comeau (Arts Centre) and Jonquière (La Rubrique Theatre). For our Montreal audience, the play will be officially launched this winter at Théâtre Outremont for its francophone premiere on January 19th and 20th. Hurry and get your tickets!

It happened this fall

Festival Quartiers Danses
For this 15th edition, Rafik Sabbagh, artistic director, gave carte blanche to Dulcinea, who created for the occasion an amusing and thoughtful conference-presentation, ‘Is there method in this madness?’.
How to create? and why? With a diversified scenic language, Dulcinea reveals to us, in an intimate and friendly way, her creative process complete with all its pitfalls!



Presentation of the Ordre National du Québec to Mr. Takeya Kaburaki
On November 15th, Dulcinea Langfelder & Co participated in the presentation of the Ordre National du Québec to Mr. Takeya Kaburaki. This Japanese businessman was rewarded for his contribution to Quebec culture and fine products in Japan, including Dulcinea's productions. The opportunity to look back at the 2003, 2005 and 2008 tours of Victoria in the country of the Rising Sun. During this event notably, Dulcinea was able to discuss with the Quebec Prime Minister, Mr. Philippe Couillard, about the Victoria Project

May 12th, 2016 - Maison de la Culture Frontenac

A huge success!

About 800 people gathered, including 150 elders in organized groups, over 100 natural and professional caregivers and others from the social/medical milieu as well as the cultural milieu, to participate in a variety of activities: an annual meeting of APPUI Montreal, Informational kiosks, a round table and post-performance discussions about the play, Victoria, at the heart of the event.

Truly a moment of pride, solidarity, listening, learning and engagement – opening the doors to a brighter future – inspired by the positive vision offered in this consciousness raising and moral boosting play. This was an opportunity for validation and reflection.

After three presentations of works-in-progress during OFF – CINARS, C2MTL and the Festival Quartiers Danses, Dulcinea Langfelder & Co. is in residency at the Centaur Theatre in Montreal. During the summer, the team will finish building this new creation and adapt the show to the theatre that will host the launch of the english version in winter 2016. Two other residencies, in Jonquière and Baie Comeau, are also planned next winter before the premiere.
Pillow Talk , an essay on dreaming is based on a collection of real dreams that Dulcinea recorded on a bedside a state somewhere between the conscious and the unconscious. Like a whisper in the ear, the artist confides her sweetest and most outlandish dreams, to explore this "home entertainment center" that lies deep within us all. In her singular style the artist brings us a work woven with theater, dance, song and video projection.
“Everyone dreams, even if we don’t remember doing so. Every artist is inspired by dreams, even if they are not aware of it – and aren’t we all artists during the night?” Dulcinea Langfelder



We can't wait to unveil this new creation, from March 29 to April 24, 2016 at the Centaur Theatre in Montreal! Until then, feel free to share your dreams with us right here.
On a très hâte de vous dévoiler cette toute nouvelle création dont la diffusion de la version anglophone se fera du 29 mars au 24 avril 2016 au Théâtre du Centaur à Montréal! D’ici là, n’hésitez pas à partager vos rêves avec nous juste ici.

Pillow Talk Labo - Follow the creation steps!

Wednesday, 11 March 2015

Resolution 2015: I'm going to (try to) share with you, once a week, the discoveries issues from my research on "Pillow Talk, an essay on dreaming". The more I explore my own dreams (as well as other documentation) the more I believe that dreaming is at the heart of our spiritual selves and our capacity to think, to feel, to judge, to remember... and to survive. 

You can participate in my creation, in telling me about your dreams right here.

"Long live freedom of expression and its capacity to better communication between peoples. With all due respect for CHARLIE HEBDO and all my horror at what happened, I hesitate to jump on the bandwagon to cry FREEDOM OF SPEECH, since it is hurled also to defend disgusting films, thoughtless blurts verging on hate-speech… it's even used to defend buying power. Freedom of speech, YES, but speech that is thoughtful, responsible and constructive… please!" - Dulcinea
