2018 – Macbeth Muet


SpringWorks Puppets! presents Macbeth Muet, a daring, fast paced, wordless version of Shakespeare’s Scottish play adapted and performed by Montreal’s “La Fille du Laitier”. The award-winning cast uses object puppetry and physical theatre in a sex and violence filled 55 minute interpretation that’s true to the original, with an added dash of manic fun. In Market Square during the day, Macbeth Muet artist, Jon Lachlan Stewart, will challenge the audience with “Shakespeare Plays in 30 Seconds”. In this interactive, improv performance, you pick a play, which he performs on the spot… a la silent film. The results are riotously unpredictable.
