The award winning company will tour their new production of the new dance/theatre re-imagining of Shakespeare’s play in 2018.
Goaded by the whispers of demons, the Macbeths (Jonathan Goddard, Eleanor Duval) unleash murder for their own gains and set in motion their path to madness and self-destruction, unravelling events in a nightmare they cannot control.
Featuring direction and choreography by Mark Bruce, a cast of nine will present Shakespeare’s classic tragedy, drawing upon drama, dance and film.
The production will be performed by Eleanor Duval, Jonathan Goddard, Jordi Calpe-Serrats, Christopher Thomas, Daisy West, Dominic Rocca, Hannah McGlashon, Steven Berkeley-White and Carina Howard.
Meanwhile, the creative team includes: set designs by Philip Eddolls, lighting design by Guy Hoare and costume design by Dorothée Brodrück.
Talking about the production Mark Bruce said: “Macbeth hits you fast, cuts through to the bone, and for me it is the least ambiguous of Shakespeare’s plays. Its darkness opens our nightmares; we recognise fundamental traits inside ourselves and the consequences of acting upon them. The vicious pursuit of power to fill a void will always be relevant – the Macbeths are everywhere in every age, because they are a part of us.”
