Project Description

 Macbeth as you've never seen it before   

Home / Films


Brilliant young general Macbeth pulls off a glorious victory in battle before returning to a corrupt court where favours are dispensed at the whim of the king. Spurred on by prophesying drifters and with the help of his ambitious wife, Macbeth sets his sights on the throne releasing a tidal wave of violence and bloodshed to achieve his aims.

In Kit Monkman’s new adaptation, this classic tale of unchecked ambition, soured friendship, lost intimacy and the descent into savagery and nihilism is historically and geographically unplaced. Through a visually poetic and anti-naturalistic style, familiar characters and words are encountered in a strange and claustrophobic territory where the boundries between reality and madness are blurred.
