Stage Russia HD: Macbeth.Kino

Saturday, March 10, 2018 at 2 PM
Ethel M. Barber Theater
30 Arts Circle Drive, Evanston

By William Shakespeare
Adapted and directed by Yuri Butusov
A Lensoviet Theatre production

Yuri Butusov’s pastiche of conflicting styles only touches on the storyline of Shakespeare’s “Macbeth,” reflecting, instead, both confusion from confronting the myth and the desire to unveil it. It follows a non-linear technique, compiling fragments, jumbling up the characters, having them swap roles, understanding that only by blending together these singular moments can the desired completeness be achieved. The scenes are like flaming auroras, fragments of dreams and visions. The surrealistic action in the style of David Lynch plunges the audience into a state of subtle sensuousness. “Macbeth.Kino” is a beautiful nightmare that sends shivers down your spine and makes you feel like staying in it for good.

3 hours and 50 minutes, with one 15 minute intermission
Presented in Russian with English subtitles
