'Beautifully executed' - ★★★★ The Guardian
Multi-award-winning Mark Bruce Company present a striking dance theatre adaptation of Shakespeare’s Macbeth, a tragic descent into the darkest sides of human nature.
Goaded by the whispers of demons, the Macbeths (Jonathan Goddard and Eleanor Duval) unleash murder for their own gains and set in motion their path to madness and self-destruction, unravelling events in a nightmare they cannot control.
With a cast of nine and designed by the creative team that brought you Dracula and The Odyssey, this dance theatre production realises a beautifully harrowing vision of an internal wasteland formed from the pursuit of power through ruthless means.
Running time 1hr 50min including one interval. Recommended for those aged 11+ (some violent scenes).
Mark Bruce Company will be leading a one-off student workshop on 10th March and hosting a FREE post show discussion on Thursday 15th March, introduced by Rick Bland with Mark Bruce and members of the company.
