Macdeth by Company 13

The show blends clown style idiocy with chorus ensemble work and the traditional dramatic.
The dramaturgy is filmic and fast-paced, keying into the speed with which a modern audience
can decipher narrative. We have well-rounded characters that are funny, murderous and fragile:
that you end up cheering for and against, loving and hating. At times we directly address
the audience and at other times we play in the classic fourth wall tradition, bringing dynamic
changes in rhythm and energy to the work. Underpinning all this, like a film score, live music is
played onstage by the actors.The show strikes an balance between the Shakespearean text and
our own.We were conscious of engaging the parents and grandparents in the audience. From
our recent Arts Centre Melbourne season we have received overwhelming feedback that we
have achieved this.

A funny, cautionary, fake-bloody tale with Shakespeare's rich language and a good dose of invention.
