No Name Collective's witchy Halloween production of Shakespeare's bloody tragedy explores the power of fantasy, duality of virtue, and the edges of our moral limits. More…
The production, presented in a long and cavernous warehouse, will have a contemporary and other-worldly feel. Its guiding principle is that in tragedy, not everything is controlled by fate. Witches make prophesies, but Macbeth makes decisions. When Lady Macbeth implores the spirits to unsex her, her prayers are answered, conjuring a pivotal transformation. This staging explores what would happen if Macbeth and Lady Macbeth were offered new possibilities. The intention is to question the nature of man and to what extent gender affects the outcome of fate. The production also features an original score with a mix of contemporary rhythmic electronic music and mystical, earthy sounds.
