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.
