02 Jul Macbeth at 4:48
Macbeth at 4:48 is an original 50-minutes solo performance that presents an adaptation of Shakespeare’s Macbeth and Sarah Kane’s 4:48 Psychosis. The performance starts as a party with the audience that evolves into Macbeth and Lady Macbeth’s confessions about events that led them into their own destruction. Macbeth at 4:48 explores migration of dramatic texts into installation / live art events, in which the narrative is fragmented and presented as a multi sensorial aesthetic journey.
The piece is devised by Aleksandar Dundjerovic and Stephen Simms (who is performing) and designed by Maria Sanchez. Previous versions of the project premiering in Belgrade, have been seen in Madrid (Museum of Contemporary Art Reina Sofia), Spain and Birmingham (Centrala Arts Centre), UK.
