Shakespeare’s tragic tale of madness and murder is retold in a powerful production by award-winning Polish Song of the Goat Theatre company. Blending text, movement and polyphonic song, the international ensemble explores the musicality and muscularity of Shakespeare’s poetry. The story is there, the characters are there, but as the action unfolds through a uniquely imagined physical and vocal language, the drama is born anew. Shifting seamlessly from dramatic scene to visceral movement and soaring song, it is a beautiful and chilling production from one of Poland’s most innovative companies.
