TR Warszawa, Poland’s most exciting theater company, arrives in New York with a spectacular production of Macbeth that boldly reinvents the classic for the twenty-first century. With a huge cinematic sweep, the production takes multi-media theater to the limit, directed by the gifted Grzegorz Jarzyna. A dramatic two-story set, video walls, special effects, an extraordinary, layered soundscape, and a deep well of acting tradition transform Shakespeare’s web of intimacy, politics and the supernatural into a contemporary living film.
St. Ann’s Warehouse will create an outdoor theater in the Civil War-era Tobacco Warehouse, located in Empire-Fulton FerryState Park, across the street from St. Ann’s Warehouse. This historic site’s romantic, open air and column-free structure is well-suited to St. Ann’s visionary programming, at the gateway to the Brooklyn Waterfront.
Macbeth was performed in Polish with English supertitles.
