Privilege allows some to see the world as their playground while others get played. The lens of entitlement paints a rosy image over the suffering of others. Developed by the Name of Bird ensemble using their distinct brand of psycho-physical theatre and the Michael Chekhov Technique, Shakespeare's brutal drama becomes the story of one power-couple's quest for ecstasy and romance despite the toxic consequences. In a post-truth world, where fantasy and reality combine, what will reign?
Performance Schedule: 10/27 at 7pm, 10/28 and 11/4 at 3pm and 7pm, 11/5 and 11/6 at 7pm
Space for Macbeth was sponsored in part by Sokoloff Arts.
