You are invited to join The Glass Flower Society, a secret organisation whose members find and act out extraordinary stories. Consider yourself lucky, since it rarely opens its doors for non-members, however, enter at your own peril.
Inspired by two short stories by Murilo Rubião, the father of Brazilian Magic Realism, a group of elders 60+ will take the stage for two nights only, to perform their touching version of the tragic tales. Through the magic of theatre and a visual feast, they’ll share with you their views, experiences and feelings about life, death and love.
The Dende Elders
Dende Collective has been offering drama projects to the 60+ in the Church Street area in partnership with the Church Street Library since 2017. The work empowers the participants by offering best practices, in terms of content and delivery, whilst generating well-being using two of the most important tools against the adversities of the process of ageing: fun and socialization.
Directed by: André Pink Designed by: Caroline Jones Performed by: The Dende Elders
Funded by The Church Street Library and Create Church Street Fund by Westminster City Council in partnership with crowdfunding platform Spacehive.
