Meeting Macbeth…..

February 27, 2009

Logos Theatre is presenting an evening of two short performances at 7 pm on Sunday, the 1st of March – Meeting Macbeth, and Ulysses, at the The Ants Store, #2023/B, 1st Cross, 14th A Main, HAL 2nd Stage, Indiranagar, Bangalore.
Meeting Macbeth is a sharing of work created in our ongoing workshop on physicality, voice, breath, and movement through Shakespearean text. It is about ‘meeting’ Macbeth – discovering the archetypal Macbeth and Lady Macbeth who lie within us. The piece is presented by the workshop participants who are not professional actors but some of whom have training in dance, martial arts, music, etc. The performers explore the connections between Macbeth and their personal lives, and the world they live in. It is also an exploration of the interconnections of masculine and feminine energy in the form of Macbeth and Lady Macbeth, and their interrelationship. The performance lasts forty minutes.

Cast: Dayaprasad, Mythili, Neelam, Richa, Issac and Vindhya

Ulysses is a solo work-in-progress performed by Arka Mukhopadhyay. It is based on the poem of the same name by Tennyson, but it tries to go beyond the Ulyesses we get to see in the text, by searching for the essential wanderer in him through the use of songs that speak of journeys and passing.
