“Stars, hide your fires; Let light not see my black and deep desires.”
Rich, dark and brooding, 'Macbeth' follows the story of Macbeth and his ambitious wife as they become increasingly trapped by a supernatural prophecy that puts Macbeth on the throne of Scotland and destroys his sanity. Drawing on a loosely-mediaeval aesthetic that places the witches and their prophecy as the focus of an omnipotent “other”, acting over the characters and the audience, this year’s production draws audiences into a world they cannot fully comprehend or escape.
The European Theatre Group is a self-sufficient theatre tour, that has travelled by coach to schools, universities and professional venues across Europe each December for the last 57 years. Whilst Switzerland remains a central part of the itinerary, tours have also included dates in Belgium, Germany, France, The Netherlands, Luxembourg and Italy. In recent years the company have enjoyed performing for a London audience, before a home run in January at the ADC Theatre, Cambridge.
An integral part of the tour is the educational enrichment we provide. The play is designed to engage with modern audiences, from children to expatriates; alongside this we offer both artistic and technical workshops, and work with schools to support students studying the text in class.
