A Radical Classic™ from Volcano
An arresting, untraditional Shakespeare with powerful performances, striking design and sensory surprises! We have stripped back action and character to zoom in on the dynamics of the killer couple, tracking their murderous ambitions, escalating anxieties and disintegrating bonds against a backdrop of sensual pleasure and normalised violence. Expect a boisterous, playful Macbeth with ribald humour and a muscular undertow of menace. This production is ideal for anyone interested in both the play itself and in contemporary performance techniques.
For the second time in its career, Volcano re-invents Shakespeare’s pacy, eloquent tragedy; this time with a new generation of outstanding performers.
“Volcano by name, volcanic by nature, the Swansea company’s psycho serial-killer drama smashes down theatre’s fourth wall, […] moving in and out of Shakespeare’s script in a night of sound and fury signifying plenty.”
