Ducdame Ensemble is a theatrical collective committed to creating a home for internationally trained artists in New York City, while presenting timeless plays with contemporary themes through ensemble-based, performance driven story-telling.
"What's That Ducdame?"
"'Tis a Greek invocation, to call fools into a circle," or so says Jaques in Shakespeare's AS YOU LIKE IT. Just as Shakespeare used many of his "fools" to reveal truths, we at Ducdame Ensemble believe one must risk being foolish - by being bold, inquisitive, playful, unseemly and unconventional - in order to find truth in art and bring it to life. Founded by graduates of the London Academy of Music & Dramatic Art, Ducdame Ensemble is committed to impassioned, relevant, and spirited storytelling where the play is always the thing.
Ducdame Ensemble presented its inaugural USA production, a stripped-back, fast-paced, new adaptation of Lope de Vega's FUENTE OVEJUNA, in the 2015 New York International Fringe Festival. The production received high critical praise, and was selected as a FringeNYC OVERALL EXCELLENCE AWARD WINNER.
