Good news, theatergoers. Back in November, Tricklock's Co-Artistic Director Kevin R. Elder told the Alibi that the company was looking to open a Downtown performance space. That vision will be realized at a soft opening for Tricklock Performance Laboratory (110 Gold SW, next door to The Box), featuring three short plays from alumni of the company's Manoa Project: Teen Playwriting and Apprenticeship Program. The triple feature, A Digital Silhouette, explores relationship dynamics in the tech age through the works of Dani Mettler, Kyle Paoletta and Shannon Rogers. Tricklock members will act and direct, and shows run Friday and Saturday, June 22 and 23, at 8 p.m. and Sunday, June 24, at 2 p.m. All performances are $10. Look for the new digs to be officially unveiled in August.
Your Ship Has Come In
Santa Fe’s Meow Wolf presents a massive interactive installation
The Due Return, an intergalactic ship 75 feet long and 25 feet across at its widest point, has landed in an alien environment. While traveling through time and space for two centuries, the vessel and its crew collected artifacts, images and stories from many universes. Ten rooms house the haul of 200 years of exploration. The ship has been stationed in TD-31, the 31st dimensional space, for several years now, and its occupants have learned how to live in the foreign land. Glowing trees, pulsating creatures and ancient cave dwellings are some of the mysteries of this world.
