For Dzieci's chamber version of Macbeth,
the ensemble has learned all of the lines,
of every part, through a process of oral transmission.
In our rehearsals, and in production, we do not know
who will be playing any given role at any given time.
As presented by a traveling family of Gypsies,
the hour-long performance creates
the impression of a ritual or ceremony.
A very dark ceremony.
Employing haunting folk songs and chants
from Scandinavia and Eastern Europe,
Theatre Group Dzieci explores (and explodes),
the very essence of theatre and storytelling
in their one-act rendition of Shakespeare’s classic.
