About Twelfth Night
Eight actors. A bare stage. A violent shipwreck. A love-sick duke. Separated twins. A beautiful countess. Exploding with energy and originality, this is Shakespeare as you’ve never seen it. Funny, vibrant, and raw, Shakespeare’s beloved tale of love and loss shimmers to life as the actors weave music, magic, and beauty from nothing… before your eyes.
Using only a white box theater and white blocks for a set, Duende Productions seeks to make a performance on which the actors and the audience can project their imaginations. The production will feature original music composed by Olivia Vessel and performed by the actors.
Duende Productions seeks to make profound, illuminating, and elegant works for theatre and film that are classics-based or inspired, language driven, and actor focused. They produce stories that explore the breadth and depth of human experience and leave audiences breathless. Duende (from Spanish mythology): (n.) the mysterious power of art to deeply move a person. Founded in 2019 by Amy Hayes, Twelfth Night is their inaugural production.
