Dzieci has been steadily working on a Gypsy retelling of
the Shakespearean classic. For this condensed version
of Macbeth, the ensemble has learned all the lines,
of every part, through a process of oral transmission,
so as to create maximum improvisational possibilities.
In rehearsal, as well as production, we do not know
who will be playing any given role at any given time.

The show has the impression of being a ritual or
ceremony. A very mysterious ceremony. Employing
haunting folk songs and chants from Scandinavia
and Eastern Europe, along with the poetry of
Shakespeares eternal verse, the company explores,
and explodes, the very essence of theatre and storytelling.
