Video Concept

A Chilling Macbeth… The atmosphere created by Andreas Mitisek, … is claustrophobic. The action unfolds in a cold, looming space containing only a long, rough-hewn wooden table and a few stools, At times tall, billowing curtains serve as side walls and projections dominate the space, Clouds race by a thunder-storm speed, and periodically giant, real-time images of the singers unfurl like surveillance videos above their heads. Watching the Macbeths plot and seize the throne, the audience becomes spy, fulfilling its worst fears. Not only were we eyewitnesses to their lies and crime, we had something the power-obsessed couple never dreamed of – video footage to prove it. …. Disturbingly timely.
