What happens when a bored couple try to stage Macbeth in their living room?
For those of you who haven’t had a chance to see the absolutely mind- and soul-shaking rendition of Cleansed by the new Glasgow-based Fear No Colours Theatre Group – and for those who’d like a glimpse into what has driven its director and actors, and shaped the characters – I’ve put together a video narrative from a backstage chat I had with them and from their performance I attended Saturday, June 13, at Leipzig’s Neues Schauspiel. Stick ’til the end of the video to hear how they liked Leipzig. https://youtu.be/3L7K4wgnb1Y
A young, brave and intensely talented troupe of Glasgow actors performs Cleansed by Sarah Kane for the last time in Leipzig, at least this season, Sunday at 8 p.m. at Neues Schauspiel. I’d take the opportunity to see them if I were you; it’s the most intimate, passionate and raw theater performance I’ve ever seen. And it’s in English.
LeipGlo’s favorite play staged locally will be back at Neues Schauspiel in December! Here’s a review of the stellar performance we attended, during its first incarnation with Peter and Nicola under Tom Bailey’s direction.
