Lady Macbeth

South West Dance Theatre production of MacBeth

Success but at what price? When positive aspirations give way to cut-throat ambition, the road to the top becomes a highway to hell, and each step more sinister than the last. We harness a triad of eloquent dance, dextrous prose and animated signing as we spin a tale of avarice, vice and murderous malcontent.

‘Lady MacBeth’ recasts Shakespeare’s timeless tragedy in a contemporary setting. In this modern day account it is Lady MacBeth who finds her natural drive and motivations displaced. At the uncanny suggestions by an unlikely trio that a more glorious fate awaits her, she forfeits virtue and honour for a more meteoric career. Ballet, street, contemporary dance, Latin, poetry, prose and British Sign language for the deaf all entwine in an epic story-retelling.

The event is part of the Bristol Shakespeare Festival.

The witches are wonderful, their sinuous moves, and their scuttling about up on points, are suitably eerie….The choreography throughout the piece is excellent; the murders are murderous; the balletic fight scenes work; the ensemble work is tight and visually stunning.” – Theatre Bath
