The French mystic and philosopher Simone Weil wrote that “attention is the rarest and purest form of generosity”. ‘Andante’ is an invitation to pause, to connect with your senses, to be in a room with others and not have to say or even see anything. It is conceived as a generous and patient walk into a cloud of attention and time. The word andante refers to a type of musical movement that is moderately slow or distinct. It originates from the Italian word andare which means “to go”. Igor and Moreno make hypnotic and visceral works exploring people’s needs and desires. ‘Andante’ follows on from international tours of acclaimed works ‘Idiot-Syncrasy’ and ‘A Room For All Our Tomorrows’.
Cervantes Theatre presents this month ‘Darwin’s Tortoise’ (La Tortuga de Darwin), a play by the renowned Spanish playwright, Juan Mayorga directed by Paula Paz. The show will be presented in both Spanish and English with a translation by David Johnston.
