Macbeth by William Shakespeare / Created by Filter / Composer Tom Haines
“Whence is that knocking? How is it with me, when every
noise appals me?”
Three weird sisters demarcate an area on stage. They operate a strange collection
of electronic musical apparatus. Macbeth is invited in to play.
Playful, kaleidoscopic and horrific, Filter’s radical version of Macbeth fuses Shakespeare’s
corrosive, psychological thriller about ambition, power, witchcraft and sanity with innovative
sound and music to take you on a strange, funny and scintillating journey to the epicentre
of the “heat-oppressed brain”.
Filter’s irreverent and contemporary recreations of the classics – Caucasian Chalk Circle,
Three Sisters, Twelfth Night and A Midsummer Night’s Dream have gone down a storm in
the UK and the World in the past few years.
