Wyrd: The Season of The Witch

Date: 28 May 2018

The Ninefold Ensemble launches into its two-year residency at PACT with a new work, Wyrd: The Season of The Witch.

A story of malevolent ambition, Wyrd draws on the tropes of urban legend to rework Shakespeare’s Scottish Play into a new narrative that charts the rise and fall of a powerful warrior – identified only as Our Lady – whose insatiable ambition makes her a target for the malevolent Wyrd Sisters, who have their own designs for the infamous Scottish noble.

This high energy, tightly choreographed performance features elements of Shakespeare’s Macbeth, reordered and stitched back together with toe-tapping 50s pop songs, choral speaking and movement informed by the Suzuki Method of Actor Training.

Shy Magsalin directs.
