Created by Rift
Spatial Sound Design and Music by Sami El-Enany
Audiences were invited to face witches in an underground car park, drink and feast with the Macbeths as a siege raged around them and then take a restful sleep on the 27th floor in a fully immersive production set in and inspired by a brutalist architectural masterpiece in East London.
Performed overnight from 8pm until 8am, Rift created a fevered festival-like dream of characters sleepwalking through walls, confiding plots and conspiring murder in this lively and ambitious retelling of The Scottish play. A visceral experience, the performance enveloped its environs to create a world floating between dystopia and utopia; waking and sleeping, with an extraordinary view over the city at sunrise the following morning.
