ABOUT THE SHOW
Wyrd: The Season of The Witch reworks Shakespeare’s Scottish Play into a striking new narrative that follows the rise and fall of a powerful warrior identified only as ‘Our Lady.’ Her insatiable ambition makes her a target for the malevolent Wyrd Ones who have their own designs for the infamous Scottish noble. The high energy and tightly choreographed performance will feature Shakespeare’s original text cut from Macbeth, reordered and stitched back together with toe-tapping 50s pop songs, powerful choral speaking and high energy movement. Wyrd is a truly unexpected performance of the Bard’s ‘unlucky’ play.
The Ninefold ensemble launched into its atPACT two-year residency by debuting Wyrd at PACT, Erskineville in June 2018. This Halloween, audiences are once again invited to witness a story of malevolent ambition and uncanny horror performed with Ninefold’s hallmark power and precision.
