Shakespeare's supernatural tragedy is presented in a Nightmarish new reading by Sebastian Rex. A violence of sleep-deprivation and guilt are brought to life using choreography, physical theatre and an acerbic new voice. The themes of greed and megalomania are showcased in the original Shakespearean language with modern-day additions; as a timeless Macbeth feels the vice-like grip of past sins, and the harrowing consequences of murdering sleep.
Reality and hallucination merge in this astonishing piece of theatre.
Methought I heard a voice cry, “Sleep no more!
Macbeth does murder sleep”—the innocent sleep
