Artistic Direction: Marie-Hélène Bélanger et Jon Lachlan Stewart
Drawing inspiration from the silent film era, grand guignol and melodrama, this textless adaptation of Shakespeare’s Macbeth takes the original classical, and dials the speed up to 11. Macbeth Muet completely deconstructs this Shakespeare Tragedy into a fast paced, visceral theatre experience, using the body, objects as imagery, and buckets of fake blood. Entire scenes are reduced to a single look, revealing the poetry and physicality behind Shakespeare’s words. Macbeth Muet presents a world so devoid of morality that human lives become as disposable as styrofoam cups. And the excess, the blood, the scraps, the waste, will all be left behind for future kings. This reinterpretation of the original classic is an open door for young adults and students to discover a new perspective on Shakespeare.
