Theatre Lensoviet: Macbeth

Rated NR 230 min. 2018

Stage Russia HD (Lensoviet Theatre): Yuri Butusov's pastiche of conflicting styles only touches on the storyline of Shakespeare's Macbeth, reflecting, instead, both confusion from confronting the myth and the desire to unveil it. It follows a non-linear technique, compiling fragments, jumbling up the characters, having them swap roles, understanding that only by blending together these singular moments can the desired completeness be achieved. The scenes are like flaming auroras, fragments of dreams and visions. The surrealistic action in the style of David Lynch plunges the audience into a state of subtle sensuousness. Macbeth.Kino is a beautiful nightmare that sends shivers down your spine and makes you feel like staying in it for good.
