Macbeth / a nightmare for two

In their common subconscious, the Macbeths experience a nightmare within their insomnia. Two bodies which can be transformed into anything bring us this nightmare through a diversity of different styles oscillating from corporal mime to storytelling, from buffoon to object theatre; merging tragedy and comedy, everyday life and grotesque reality.

Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player, 
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage, 
And then is heard no more. It is a tale 
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury
Signifying nothing.
