Sometime in the near future, humanity has failed to adapt to the new ecological reality. Watch the end of the world as we know it unfolds before your eyes on the Tornabene Theatre stage with Dimanche.
In a small building, a family is about to spend their Sunday together. But the walls are shaking, strong winds and torrential rain rage outside, and the storm has only just begun. Amidst this chaos, they absurdly attempt to maintain a normal family life. Meanwhile, three traveling wildlife reporters are doing their best to document Earth’s last living species.
Between dreamlike fiction and factual reality, Dimanche paints a tender portrait of humanity. Using lo-fi FX, miniature vehicles, puppetry, video, and mime, Dimanche observes the ingenuity and stubbornness of humans as they try to preserve their day-to-day habits, going to extremes to keep up a sense of normalcy despite the chaos.
