When and where

from 24.04.2024

to 25.04.2024

Inspired by the burlesque acting of silent films, this silent, bold, brutal and bloody performance takes us on a wordless journey through the ruthless pursuit of power with humour and melodramatic gestures.A new vision of the criminal spouses in a sped-up version completely unravels Shakespeare’s tragedy. The combination of bodies, objects and stage blood is dominated by a social and emotional poignancy that depicts the futility of human life in a world without morals. The performance is supported by an impressive soundtrack and exceptional animation choreography by two puppeteers.  

About "Macbeth muet"

"Imaginative, ingenious, startlingly powerful: that’s the high-impact 50minute version of Shakespeare’s Macbeth delivered to us by Montreal’s La Fille du Laitier."

Liz Nicholls, 12thnight.ca (21/08/2018)

 

"Now and again – and not very often – I just want to write, "See it !" and not a word more."

Jo Ledingham Theatre reviews, On the scene (30/05/ 2018)

 

"…inventive and oxygenating (…) it may break your heart in a way you don’t see coming.”(…)What’s unexpected, and impressive, is the social and emotional acuity of this variation on Shakespeare’s play. (…) this production hasn’t forgotten the essential role of sex in marriage, including the Macbeths’."

Laura Collins-Hugues, The New York Times (Septembre 2017)
