A soldier loyal to his country encounters three witches on the battlefield that tell him he will be king. Now, Macbeth and his partner in crime, Lady Macbeth, are on a bloody path of ambition, power, and betrayal.
Macbeth Muet completely deconstructs this Shakespeare tragedy into a fast-paced, visceral theatre experience, using the body, objects as imagery, and a ton of fake blood. Entire scenes are reduced to a single look, as Shakespeare’s complex and beautiful poetry is rendered mute and searing. And through it all, a couple is transformed irrevocably. Our Macbeth is a world so devoid of morality or thought and so disposed towards action and results that human lives are as disposable as styrofoam cups. And the excess, the blood, the scraps, the waste, will all be left behind for future kings.
“…inventive and oxygenating…it may break your heart in a way you don’t see coming.”
– New York Times
★★★★ ★ “This is a display of sheer theatrical invention.- 5 STARS, Winnipeg Free Press
“…a brilliant alternative presentation of Shakespeare’s play told through physical theatre and the manipulation of everyday
objects…performers Clara Prévost and Jérémie Francoeur are as impressive as the best young classical actors.”- NOW Magzine, NNNNN (out of 5)
★★★★ ★ “The promise, it seems, is that things are about to get messy – and they do, with crowd-pleasing results…Frenetic, fun and ingenious, Macbeth Muet is killer theatre.”
