Macbeth, the Scottish Play
The stark minimalism of the staging of Macbeth, the Scottish Play (Macbeth, a Peça Escocesa) does not affect the quality of its performance. Performing with the bare minimum, the actors were at home with the text and knew how to communicate it well to the audience. The bareness of the stage also helps to accentuate the eeriness and other-worldly quality of the weird sisters. Breaking the frame of the fourth wall, the play integrates backstage and stage, deliberately drawing attention to the relationship between theatre and life. All thirteen actors are kept on the stage during the whole performance. Director Regina Galdino not only explores the theme of ambition which permeates Shakespeare’s play but also reflects upon the topsy-turvy values inherent in the weird sisters’ language.
