Meeting Macbeth.. Repeat show!!

March 22, 2009

Meeting Macbeth, a devised performance, at the premises of Sukrupa, #15, G.R.Layout, Cholanayakanahalli, R.T.Nagar (Near Rajiv Gandhi Dental College), on Monday, the 23rd of March, at seven P.M.
‘Meeting Macbeth’ is a piece created in our recent workshop on physicality, voice, breath, rhythm and movement through Shakespearean text. It is about ‘meeting’ Macbeth – discovering the archetypal Macbeth and Lady Macbeth who lie within us.  The performers explore the connections between Macbeth and their personal lives, and the world they (and indeed all of us) live in, by sharing personal stories inspired by and created in response to the text. It is also an exploration of the interconnections of masculine and feminine energy in the form of Macbeth and Lady Macbeth, and their interrelationship, as well as looking at the witches and looking for their meaning and significance through acts of ritual, play, movement, song and dance. The performance attempts to look at the human face of Macbeth – at the man behind the mask of  the painted devil, trying to find that human face in the mirror. In so doing, it laments the passing of an inner state of beauty, and its replacement with a world of cynicism where a religion of love is turned into a religion of blood, where unknowing and terror haunt our footsteps. Above all, the performance is a celebration of theatre – of all the rasaas of the Indian tradition, and is thus ultimately an attempt to celebrate Shakespeare through Indian performance aesthetics, and in so doing, celebrate the human self itself.
This performance is being presented in association with Sukrupa, an NGO whose mission is to help underprivileged children escape a background of poverty, slum life, illiteracy and ignorance, replacing these challenges with hope and opportunities available to mainstream children.

Cast: Dayaprasad, Mythili, Neelam, Richa and Vindhya
