About This Show

Georges Bigot, central to Ariane Mnouchkine’s Theatre du Soleil during the 80’s and 90’s and one of France’s most lauded contemporary actors, comes to Chicago to direct Shakespeare’s Macbeth. Collaborating for a full year with Theatre Y, Bigot directs at the “foot of the letter”, allowing his foreign ear to break open Shakespeare’s intricate poetry into an immediate and palpable event. Known all over the world for highly physical ensemble work.
