Dende had a busy January:
• The PASSION OF PEDRO CAMACHO @ NEWVOLUTIONS - Lincoln Performing Arts Centre
18 Jan, 2015 - 6 pm
This was the first time André Pink (Dende’s Artistic Director) collaborated with Mark O’Thomas who was a Dende core member till 2008. Mark has translated, written, adapted and devised several shows for the company. They worked with 10 actors on a 4-day R&D devising a show based on the novel Aunt Julia and the scriptwriter by the Peruvian Mario Vargas Llosa. This was first stage of a new Dende show for later in 2015 or 2016.
NEWVOLUTIONS is Lincoln’s annual festival of new performance. Every New Year Lincoln Performing Arts Centre presents a micro-season of work-in-progress by local, regional and national theatre makers, dancers and choreographers, performers and artists offering audiences an informal opportunity to have a say in the creative process.

While Bilac’s work can be seen constantly in the theatres of São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, this is Bilac’s first play staged in the UK. Winner of several acclaimed prizes. FLUXOMRAMA is comprised of 3 monologues by 3 characters on the edge and each going through a transcendental moment in their lives. FLUXORAMA is a dark and deeply human production which pays homage to the way 1950s Brazilian type of poetry - Poesia Concreta, was written. Fluxorama was first presented by Theatre503 and Cal Arts as part of Red Like Embers: Contemporary Voices from Brazil.
