Inspired by the burlesque acting of silent films, this bold, brutal and bloody performance takes us on a wordless journey through the ruthless pursuit of power with humour and melodramatic gestures.

A new vision of the criminal spouses in a sped-up version completely unravels Shakespeare’s tragedy. The combination of bodies, objects and stage blood is dominated by a social and emotional poignancy that depicts the futility of human life in a world without morals. The performance is supported by an impressive soundtrack and exceptional animation choreography by two puppeteers.

“Imaginative, ingenious, startlingly powerful: that’s the high-impact 50minute version of Shakespeare’s Macbeth delivered to us by Montreal’s La Fille du Laitier.”

“Now and again – and not very often – I just want to write, “See it!” and not a word more.”

Jo LedinghamTheatre reviews On the scene // 30 mai 2018

“…inventive and oxygenating (…) it may break your heart in a way you don’t see coming.”(…)What’s unexpected, and impressive, is the social and emotional acuity of this variation on Shakespeare’s play. (…) this production hasn’t forgotten the essential role of sex in marriage, including the Macbeths’.”
