English

It’s a play, within a documentary, within a film

A theater company rehearses Macbeth. A documentary film crew follows them during the rehearsal process. Occasionally the actors become lost in Shakespeare’s world. This blend of intense drama, dance and humor is a refreshing take on Shakespeare’s classic text.

Tango MacBeth offers a multicultural, multigenerational vision and presentation of the Shakespeare play. This provocative version of Macbeth unfolds like a Möbius strip. Moving back and forth, the drama of the play intertwines with the drama of making the film. The film offers an original and imaginative way of bringing a classic to contemporary times.
