Macbeth: Director’s Cut is A Radical Classic™ from Volcano
For the second time in its career, Volcano re-invents Shakespeare’s pacy, eloquent tragedy; this time with a new generation of outstanding performers.
This is an arresting, untraditional Shakespeare with powerful performances, striking design and sensory surprises! We have stripped back action and character to zoom in on the dynamics of the killer couple, tracking their murderous ambitions, escalating anxieties and disintegrating bonds against a backdrop of sensual pleasure and normalized violence. The setting walks an uneasy line between the regal and the domestic, exposing an austere brutality underpinning the noble pretensions of personal and political power. Expect a boisterous, playful Macbeth with ribald humour and a muscular undertow of menace. This production is ideal for anyone interested in both the play itself and in contemporary performance techniques.
