A fairytale for the hip-hop generation.
One the Bear is vital, contemporary theatre that explores themes of identity, exploitation, appropriation and friendship in a world gone wild with celebrity. With its infectious beats, dynamic and innovative design and powerful performances, One the Bear is a not-to-be-missed experience for schools.
Presented by Bell Shakespeare Company | Directed by Amy Hardingham and Huw McKinnon
The charm’s wound up. Ancient Scotland is bridged with the contemporary world in a brand-new production of Macbeth, set in a media-rich, audio-visual landscape.
Three teenage girls take hold of a camera and the narrative as the Weird Sisters, presenting the play through a fresh lens. Using live video projection, technology will intersect the plot and characters, as Macbeth’s bloodthirsty campaign rages towards its end. Watching, documenting and interfering with the medieval world, the Weird Sisters hold the fate of the play in their hands, and not just with their prophecies. It’s Shakespeare’s original language within an innovative and immersive framework that urgently asks why this play, and why now?
