A dark and stormy night: The Duc­dame En­sem­ble

Pasatiempo - - RANDOM ACTS -

The nar­ra­tive back­story cre­ated by the artists of Meow Wolf to ex­plain the odd­ness and won­der of The House of Eter­nal

Re­turn in­volves mul­ti­ple gen­er­a­tions of the same fam­ily, iden­tity con­fu­sion, and re­la­tion­ships be­tween broth­ers and sis­ters — themes that also ap­pear in Shake­speare’s Twelfth Night, a chaotic ro­man­tic com­edy fea­tur­ing a ship­wreck, a love tri­an­gle, and mild med­i­cal tor­ture. The Duc­dame En­sem­ble — the reper­tory com­pany of Santa Fe’s In­ter­na­tional Shake­speare Cen­ter — per­forms an im­mer­sive ver­sion of Twelfth Night in­side The House of Eter­nal Re­turn at Meow Wolf (1352 Ru­fina Cir­cle; 505395-6369) at 8 p.m. on Mon­day, Aug. 29, and Tues­day, Aug. 30; there is a pre-show talk at 7:30 p.m. This is the first ful­l­length the­atri­cal per­for­mance to take place in­side The House of Eter­nal Re­turn. Some scenes are per­formed in the stage area, while oth­ers move through the house and var­i­ous rooms. Tick­ets are $35, avail­able at www. me­ow­wolf.com. — J.L.
