A Mini-Review of Mark Dendy’s Labyrinth

Got blown away last night by Mark Dendy’s Labyrinth at The Abrons Arts Center. Mr Dendy deftly wove together Jungian archetype, cosmology, and the Theseus myth as a metaphor for individuation (with the inevitable encounters with madness along the way) wrapping it up with a powerful suggestion about the decline of patriarchy and the unstoppable and sometimes terrifying return of the feminine, organic principle. And all the while it never ceased to be wildly entertaining. This piece raises the bar for American independent theatre.
