 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.
