A brief encounter with poetic movement.
Centered around the relationship of Macbeth and Lady Macbeth, the Shakespearean tale is reinterpreted with dance theater, using beautiful Japanese fans.
The traditional fan--a simple device with an untapped potential of expression--flows like no other puppetry or prop in Fan Macbeth. Merged with human bodies, it transforms the landscape of storytelling into a short yet rich, breathtaking dream-like theater experience.
Fan Macbeth was first developed and received workshop presentation at Mabou Mines’s resident artist program, Mabou Mines/Suite.
Conceived directed & co-choreographed by Sonoko Kawahara
Co-choreographed by Tsuyoshi Kaseda & Ai Ikeda
With: Ai Ikeda, Jun Kim and Hillary Specter
