EVENT DESCRIPTION

Following the knockout performance of imPerfect Dancers Company’s Hamlet in 2022, an Italian production performed by a local cast and presented by TSWTS, the 2024 HKISF will see another exciting cultural exchange between Hong Kong and Italy – the performance of the company’s another iconic piece Lady Macbeth in collaboration with Hong Kong Dance Company (HKDC).

Deputy choreographer Huang Lei, HKDC’s Dance Master, will join force with Principal Dancers Hua Chi-yu and Ong Tze-shen, who play the roles of Lady Macbeth and Banquo respectively, to bring this gripping, psychologically profound dance theatre to life.

Lady Macbeth starts off where Shakespeare’s version ends: the Macbeths are dead. Freed from their earthly torments, they are however condemned to endlessly relive the darkest period of their past – a punishment inflicted upon them and which they in turn inflict on each other. They blame one another, seeing the other as the real culprit. Lady Macbethfocuses on the devastating and bleak love story between the Macbeths, taking the audience on a journey to discover the complexities of the human psyche.

Part of the Hong Kong International Shakespeare Festival
