Macbeth

By william shakespeare | Brooklyn Navy Yard

No Name Collective Presents:

MACBETH

Directed by Tatiana Baccari

In this gender-swapped production the traveler witches allow Lady Macbeth and Macbeth to “unsex,” embodying the power of fantasy in a patriarchal world in which virtue, power, and freedom are bound to class hierarchy and gender.

Brooklyn Navy Yard, Fall 2017

Tatiana Baccari, who directs the play, embraces the chaotic magic of Macbeth as a metaphor for power dynamics. In her version, characters swap genders; lady-kings rule over Scotland; and witches roam the stage.

Arguably, the strongest aspect of this production was the way it was staged in this space and its overall ambiance and atmosphere. Under the direction of Tatiana Baccari, the cast is able to make great use of a large and somewhat unconventional theatre space and keep the attention of the audience, who watch from various corners of the large space as performers are at the center.
