MCBTH

MCBTH is the drama of Macbeth reduced to its naked essence. Five actors, six musicians and three female singers tell the story of a man whose every murder takes him a step further away from reality.

Guy Cassiers and Dominique Pauwels have come up with a new form of music theatre in which music and song are fellow players in the story. They reveal a dimension that is hidden and suppressed in the spoken word. MCBTH evokes the play’s brutal poetry by means of the intense interaction between word, image and song.

 

Premiere 26 September 2013 Bourla Antwerp
