    Macbeth Muet au Wildside festival

    Borrowing from the style of grand guignol, silent film and melodrama, this textless adaptation of the timeless Shakespearean tragedy rockets us through a frenetic and comedic trail to power. Macbeth Muet deconstructs one of Shakespeare’s most famous power couples to uncover the stories we never see, in a blood-ridden and visceral production; a world devoid of morality where soldiers and kings are as disposable as paper cups. Pushed relentlessly forward by a rapid-fire soundtrack, two actor-puppeteers weave and shift through a high-voltage choreography to tell this couple’s epic story.
