The Ducdame Ensemble of actors are in town to perform for the International Shakespeare Center's inaugural repertory season in Santa Fe. Nine Ducdame members traveled to Santa Fe from New York, Canada, and beyond, to perform Shakespeare's Twelfth Night at Meow Wolf, an amazing art gallery/collective/experience located in a former bowling alley, although once inside, you're totally convinced you're in a weird, two-story, Victorian house named House of Eternal Return. Ducdame created an immersive theater experience, with the audience following the actors from space to freaky space for different scenes of the play, eventually ending up in the performance stage area (an appropriately weird but inspiring space) that worked amazing well.
One thrilled audience member, Suzanne, wrote the following review:
The Ducdame Ensemble's performance of Shakespeare's Twelfth Night was not only a sellout, it received a robust standing ovation. Later that night, back at the International Shakespeare Center Santa Fe headquarters, the members of the ensemble gathered for several toasts and merriment ensued.
