macbeth branding

music theatre

In this stylised musical narration the Oresteia and Macbeth are interbred. This inter-familial struggle for power is modelled like a tragic farce about the heredity of the primordial guilt, in which revenge is the motor.

The cacophony of scenes and characters is restrained by means of a strict black-and-white symbolism in the costumes. The set is restricted to a minimum to give a clear field for text and movement. The props are stuck together from newspapers to underline the  insanity of the struggle for power.

text and direction: Dirk van Opstaele
