Tero Saarinen Company and TTT Theatre, a leading Finnish drama theatre, join forces in presenting a multidisciplinary interpretation of Shakespeare’s classic. The amalgamation of dance, drama and juggling creates a razor-sharp and current exploration into greed and manipulation.

Macbeth (1606) is one of the most violent depictions of greed for power in dramatic literature. Shakespeare’s tragedy of the Macbeths who will stop at nothing to seize the crown is captivating in its poignancy and timelessness.

”In our interpretation, I wanted to plunge into the acts of a manipulating and contaminating mind – without overlooking the ingrained irony and humour characteristic to Shakespeare’s works”, director-choreographer Tero Saarinen says.

In Macbeth, co-directed with TTT Theatre’s Artistic Director Otso Kautto, everyone on stage is both subject and object to the narrative. Michael Baran’s austere adaptation of the original play, Mikki Kunttu’s lighting design, Samu-Jussi Koski’s costumes and Marko Nyberg’s music and sound design revise the tragedy to the present.
