Duende (from Spanish mythology): (n.) the mysterious power of art to deeply move a person.
Duende seeks to make profound, illuminating, and elegant works for the theatre and sometimes film that are classics-based or inspired, language driven and actor focused.
Desire. Ache. Feeling so deep and visceral that words won’t do. Art that affects us in a primordial way. Stories that explore the breadth and depth of human experience and leave us breathless. Wonder. Mystery. Beauty. Ephemera. Often used to describe particularly moving Flamenco dancers.
Duende is magic. Duende is powerful. Duende is meaningful and moving and hilarious and ecstatic and stirring and heart-wrenching and joyful.
It comes out of nowhere. It surprises. It delights. It startles and mystifies and illuminates.
It is the depth and width of the human experience in the magical container of art.
