“Sonder: Transformations”, is a micro-theater festival that will feature five original plays from six of Albuquerque’s most exciting artists. Each play was created using the theme of Transmogrification, which means “to transform in a surprising, grotesque, or magical manner.”
The performances take place in a beautiful house (lovingly dubbed the “Seventies Smash” house) nestled in Albuquerque’s Nob Hill. Audiences will be split into groups of ten and travel from room-to-room as they experience each new piece. Each of the five performance will be 10-12 minutes long and performed in an intimate setting.
Micro theater is a form of performance popularized in Europe, most prominently by “Microteatro” in Spain. The style has been gaining popularity in cities across the U.S. in recent years and returns to Albuquerque for two exciting weeks. Unlike traditional theater, audience members will be within arm’s length of each performer and experience the raw, visceral nature of each performance in ways that other styles do not typically allow.
The venue itself is a character all on its own. Whether audiences descend a stunningly glittered staircase to the basement, climb the spiral staircase past the chandelier, or venture into the indoor pool room the atmosphere itself will give a magical feel to the evening.
April 4th-13th; Thursdays through Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. at 723 Parkland Circle SE
