Something Wicked This Way Comes
Wicked, and beautiful, and harrowing
Macbeth's had a makeover. And we're not talking lip gloss and a new do — the big-thinking Mark Bruce Company has developed a dance-theatre adaptation of Shakespeare’s tragic descent into the darkest sides of ourselves. And if you've left your Key Notes GCSE guide to the 17th Century text back at your Mom's, Macbeth could be summed up as dramatising the damaging effects of political ambition on those who seek power for power's sake — kind of a biggie right now you might think. Marking the launch of DanceXchange's new season, the production realises a striking, beautiful, harrowing vision of the destruction caused by the self-centred pursuit of power. Catch it at 8pm on Feb 8 and 9 at the small but perfectly formed Patrick Centre. Entrance opposite The Meat Shack. Tickets are usually £16, but enter "ICHOOSEMAC" in the promo code box at the top of this page before January 24 to get your ticket for £14.
