Macbeth: A Lecture Demonstration by Tang Shu-Wing Theatre Studio, Hong Kong
In this unique lecture-demonstration, artistic director Tang Shu-Wing will discuss this fascinating physical theatre production of Shakespeare’s Scottish play, and members of the Studio will present several scenes from the production. Inspired by the tradition of Asian physical theatre, this version of Macbeth transmits the spirit of the play through a succession of stylised images, where body expression, physical movements and live accompaniment expose the characters' relationship as well as the director's vision of time and space.
This event is the 2020 Kirk Davis Jr. Public Shakespeare Lecture. Additional support from UCI Shakespeare Center donors and UCI’s Center for Asian Studies.
Please also join us for a symposium and discussion on Monday, February 3, HG1030.
Tuesday, February 4 at 6:00pm to 8:00pm
