“NoExit invites you to check into a world where not all things are as they seem… One part Shakespeare, one part Freud, and one part Parnassus, This Is Not Shakespeare’s Macbeth invites you inside a hospital turned imaginarium to witness how susceptible we all are to the power of our own imaginings.
From director Michael Burke (Medea, Pillowman, I Am Peter Pan) this site-specific work, built atop the original Shakespeare, examines the intrinsic connection between conscious and conscience: the idea that retribution comes from within and it is the demons of our own minds that bring us the greatest grief in the wake of our actions.
Pulling from imagery and practices of sanatoriums and asylums of old, and featuring original, live soundscaping by Madison, WI-based, The Brothers Grimm, devices of hospital lore become the stuff of nightmares, transforming the hospital gallery as the wards take an active role as characters and scene-setters in the mania of two particular patients who seem to be violently reliving the events in their lives that continue to torture their souls…
The Irvington Office Center will host …Macbeth, opening on Thursday, June 13, and running through Saturday, June 29.“
