Wyrd: Vignettes for the witching hour
Venue: Don Bank Museum
Join us on Halloween at Don Bank Museum for an exclusive sneak peak of selected scenes and vignettes from a new work based on Shakespeare's Macbeth produced by the innovative Ninefold Ensemble.
Wyrd is Ninefold's own deranged horror-thriller version of Shakespeare's Macbeth that draws entirely on the supernatural aspects of the original story.
Lady Macbeth is placed at the centre of the play and we follow her descent into guilt and despair as to carve up and twist Shakespeare's tragedy into a Lynch-esque nightmare full of witchcraft, demonic apparitions and ghost sightings.
About Ninefold Ensemble
Ninefold is a Sydney-based theatre ensemble. Founded by Shy Magsalin, the ensemble was formed to investigate highly rigorous and disciplined ensemble performance-making. Ninefold is Sydney’s only contemporary theatre ensemble that works exclusively with the Suzuki Method of Actor Training alongside development and rehearsal processes. The training, developed by renowned theatre director Tadashi Suzuki, results in performances that are unlike anything else on the contemporary stage. Ninefold continues to investigate the application of this training in an Australian context by making work that is unrelentingly intense, physically precise and imaginatively rich.

Refreshments will be served at from 6.30pm and there will be an opportunity for Q&A after the performance.
