When the prophecy of three witches proclaims that Macbeth is destined to become King of Scotland, he and Lady Macbeth embark upon a murderous journey of treachery, paranoia, betrayal and suicide. Beginning with Shakespeare’s text, powerful and unsettling choreography weaves its way throughout the story, until words falter and finally give way.
“stylish, disturbing theatre that will have purists tearing their hair out”
“a fantastic ride, full of sound and fury”
"Bold, visceral and topical"
