Macbeth/İki Kişilik Kâbus (Macbeth/A Nightmare for Two)

Macbeth/İki Kişilik Kâbus by Tiyatro BeReZe premiered in İstanbul in 2016 and it has been performed in various theatres in Turkey and abroad as part of international theatre festivals. The founders of Tiyatro BeReZe, Erkan Uyanıksoy and Elif Temuçin reduce the number of actors in Macbeth to two and perform as the Macbeth couple. Directed by Doğu Akal, the couple is domesticated to a great extent with a scenery representing their bedroom and scenes depicting the intimate moments of both characters suffering from insomnia and drinking coffee. In this highly acclaimed production, there are resonances of object theatre, clown theatre, buffoonery, and postdramatic theatre. The scenery and costumes are designed by Lucile Larour and Patricia Ulbricht. There are seemingly dissonant and minimal props such as a bucket, toilet paper, flowers, and a tarlatan. These creative interventions markedly move the play away from its tragic origin. The effort put by the team in the transformations of the number of actors, scenery, costume, and performance is worthwhile, and the play deserves the international acclaim it has received.
