Directed by Sean O’Riordan for Barestage Theatre, Macbeth – The Installation is an original and surreal take on Shakespeare’s story of the warrior who would be king of Scotland.
Performances will be streamed live so audiences can watch the Scottish tragedy at home. Utilising new filming technology, which gives audiences multiple settings in one theatre space with actors interacting live, Barestage Theatre’s production of Shakespeare’s Macbeth promises an exciting live theatre experience set in the mind of Lady Macbeth as she plunges off the battlements.
With live theatre work at a stand-still due to the COVID-19 pandemic, director Sean O’Riordan applied for a Quick Response Grant from the City of Sydney council, with a vision to give performers and crew the opportunity to work on an innovative project during the shutdown. Actors and film crew have rehearsed and will perform without a live audience at the Darlo Drama theatre.
