Dulcinea Langfelder & Co.

The Company

Founded in 1985, in Montreal, Dulcinea Langfelder & Co. is a non-profit organization that has produced the following works: Cheek to Cheek (2018), Pillow Talk, an essay on dreaming (2016), Dulcinea’s Lament (2008), Victoria (1999), Portrait of a Woman with Suitcase (1994), Hockey! O.K.? (1990), The Lady Next Door (1989) and Vicious Circle (1986).

The company has toured extensively: 125 tours. Dulcinea has succeeded in transposing her texts (which are largely wordplay) into the language of the host country. She performs entire shows in  French, English and Spanish, several scenes in Japanese and Mandarin; she makes every effort to establish a warm bond with the audience that receives it.

Art that does us good. This is the motto that Dulcinea Langfelder has inscribed at the heart of her works. All are of great sensitivity and exceptional artistic intelligence, as deeply thoughtful as they are stimulating. She plunges into the heart of the most delicate subjects with her humor so singular, mixing tenderness with the pungent. Her shows are universal in scope and reflect a vision of tolerance between people, of rapprochement between religions, between cultures and even between generations. Dulcinea has spent her career trying to make the world a better place, breaking down barriers, addressing human dilemmas, and crossing the boundaries of the possible. She has a knack for making beautifully visible what is there, before our eyes but which we do not always see.

Artistic approach

“Everyone asks me to define what I do in terms of a discipline, everyone except my audience. During a performance, it becomes obvious. The human imagination does not categorize – the proof is in the dreaming! We don’t have “speaking” dreams, “musical” dreams or “movement” dreams. We don’t have “traditional” dreams or “experimental” dreams. When we dream we mix everything up. What I do on stage simply reflects the normal functioning of the imagination. Imagery is not just pictures. Imagery speaks to us on a level which goes deeper than language and culture, and concerns all of our senses, since imagery is suggestive, and provokes our sense memory.”
