Macbeth, Shakespeare’s classic tragedy transformed into a satire infused with Eastern aesthetics. A witch appears before the general Macbeth as he returns a victorious war hero and prophesies that he will become King of Scotland. Egged on by his wife, Macbeth kills and usurps King Duncan, triggering a chain of murders that claims the lives of political enemies and close comrades. Possessed by bloodthirst and racked with guilt and paranoia, Macbeth begins to unravel.
Emerging young Chinese theatre director Huang Ying, together with renowned theatre icon Tadashi Suzuki as artistic director, creates a familiar yet refreshing presentation that at once stays true to the classic text while possessing a relevance to our age.
