Macbeth: without words

A stark and stylised performance of this most familiar of tales, of boundless ambition and greed and the destruction it ultimately wreaks. Visual technologies – video projections and animation – accompanied by a dynamic DJ set and darkly brooding sound world, transform Shakespeare’s words and narrative into a visual language of potent and symbolic movement and imagery. This dramatic canvas of images also draws upon the theories of Bertolt Brecht and silent era film aesthetics, creating an intriguingly alternative interpretation of Macbeth’s rapid rise to power and even more precipitous fall.
