The neigh­bor­hood in the vicin­ity of Meow Wolf — north of Cer­ril­los Road be­tween Siler Road and Richards Av­enue — has be­come known as the Ru­fina Arts District or “the RAD.” Though the youth-ori­ented arts col­lec­tive has drawn na­tional attention to the RAD in the past cou­ple of years for its mys­te­ri­ous and sur­real fun­house, the net­worked blocks of in­dus­trial spa­ces are also home to a blos­som­ing lo­cal theater scene that has been ger­mi­nat­ing in the area since Teatro Paraguas opened there in 2009. Sev­eral groups have per­for­mance and re­hearsal space there, and in the spirit of small-town col­lab­o­ra­tion, they of­ten rent or do­nate it to more root­less Santa Fe col­lec­tives.
