A TALE THAT MUST BE TOLD: MACBETH (THEATRE) - KK ARTS FEST 2018


13 August 2018 - Targeted at audience as young as 8 years old, this interactive storytelling uses action and live music to recount the rise and fall of Macbeth the Scottish Thane, one of the greatest characters in Shakespeare’s canon. The classic tale will be presented differently in an interactive, family-friendly version of the popular tale, as performed by the KL Shakespeare Players (KLSP). This version ofMacbeth, which has been made specially age-appropriate by KLSP, retells the iconic story with colourful costumes, dolls and playthings, soundscapes and activities that children are familiar with. Audience will have the chance to participate in some exciting moments in the play, such as the opening battle, and the seduction of the three witches.

The story is told in modern English,with some key phrases in the original Shakespeare’s text. This allows the young audience to follow the main plot and themes of the play, and be familiar with famous lines such as “Fair is foul , and foul is fair…” or “Double, double, toil and trouble…”

A great performance to watch with the whole family. A great way to expose and introduce the great Shakespeare to the young ones!
