EVENT DESCRIPTION

Italian director Alessandro Serra sets Shakespeare’s most compact tragedy in the ancient and mysterious island of Sardinia, Italy, utilising its unique culture and customs to create the darkest interpretation of Macbeth. The primitive desire for power fills the desolate land, where cowbells, animal skins, horns, stones and human voices pierce the theatre and intense lighting strikes the nerve. Resembling the tradition of Elizabethan theatre during Shakespeare’s time, the all-male cast puts on an eerie, physical and all-baring performance to showcase the shocking and extreme darkness in human nature.

Part of the Hong Kong International Shakespeare Festival
