breath-taking | classic | multi-media
A man lies covered in blood on the floor of a bar in the old town. Alongside him are the corpses of the feared criminal Macbeth and his once almighty partner Lady Macbeth. With police sirens off in the distance already drawing near, the survivor recounts the gruesome story of the nefarious pair and tells how they came to a violent end. In flashbacks and projections, moving screens and live camera techniques, the story of Macbeth, driven by his lust for power and his ambitious wife and doing everything he can to become king, is retold in startling images. “Macbeth” poses the question of the origin of evil and, based on Shakespeare’s classic yet increasingly relevant tragedy, delves into the complex relationship between ambition, power and violence at a time when the concept of morality is constantly being put to the test.
British artists’ collective imitating the dog was founded in 1998 by Pete Brooks, Andrew Quick and Simon Wainwright and has gone on to make a name for itself way beyond the shores of the UK for its innovative and unusual new interpretations of classics of world literature.
