World-in-Theatre and the Theatre Department of Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts present
True to its mission, Singapore theatre group World-in-Theatre once again brings to the stage an important work of world literature – Shakespeare’s Macbeth. Directed by Shelly Quick, this production is collaboration between World-in-Theatre and the Theatre Department of Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts.
Approaching Shakespeare’s timeless classic as if it were a play newly written, World-in-Theatre’s Macbeth emerges as an exciting piece of contemporary theatre. In this ageless tale of wars and the struggle of mankind for power and security, physically and visually dynamic staging directs the audience’s attention to meanings and connections freshly uncovered in the text. This is Macbeth conceived for our own uncertain times.
A strong believer in physical training for actors, Singapore resident Shelly Quick has prepared the performers for this production using the methods of theatre training associated with Tadeshi Suzuki and Anne Bogart of the SITI company of New York.
