Synopsis


The Other Theatre presents Shakespeare’s tale of ambition, murder and magic in French and Haitian Creole.

In a land ravaged by war, a loyal soldier is tempted to seize power at all costs.   An honorable man turned tyrant through greed and desire, Macbeth pits himself against the natural order, his rise and fall brought to life by the force and beauty of Shakespeare’s text.  A tale where the living and the dead exchange faces, where the magical and the mortal become indistinguishable, Macbeth invites the spectator into the heart of dreams and madness.

In May 2010, we were invited to present an excerpt in front of the Governor General of Canada, the Honorable Michaëlle Jean, as part of an event organized by the Regroupement des jeunes chambres de commerce du Québec.

“Graceful gestures enhance time-honoured lines in this dance-informed, ritualistic piece. … The co-opting of a local park into the decor is but one of many deft visual touches within this not-to-be-missed production.”


The Gazette, April 9, 2010


“… a sinewy hot-blooded production, so contained, so inviting, it feels like a series of scenes you’ve stumbled upon by accident, hidden in the shelter of a stand of mango trees as you spy on the unfolding horror.”


Montreal Mirror, April 15, 2010
