Italian talented director Alessandro Serra and an all-male cast hold the stage with a sensational physical theatre

Italian director Alessandro Serra sets Shakespeare's most compact tragedy in the ancient and mysterious island of Sardinia, Italy, utilising its unique culture and customs to create the darkest interpretation of Macbeth. The primitive desire for power fills the desolate land, where cowbells, animal skins, horns, stones and human voices pierce the theatre and intense lighting strikes the nerve. Resembling the tradition of Elizabethan theatre during Shakespeare's time, the all-male cast puts on an eerie, physical and all-baring performance to showcase the shocking and extreme darkness in human nature.

**Recipient of the Best Show of the Year, Ubu Award 2017; the Best Prose Show, The Masks of the Theater Award 2019 and the Baltic Theater Festival Prize 2021**

"Alessandro Serra subtly distils the quintessential plot of the tragedy, often transmuting text into visual metaphors. Macbettu is an incessant cauldronful of fiendishly inventive ideas orchestrated by Serra like an irresistible dance macabre."—SAGE Journals
