Wyrd: The Season of the Witch

by Ninefold
presented by PACT and Ninefold - a theatre ensemble

 

“A highly physical approach to a familiar Shakespeare text unearths (something) weird and wonderful…Sydney’s Ninefold ensemble makes in strange again.” – Jason Blake, Audrey Journal

 

“Every small movement, tilt, run or group travel is beautiful.” – Judith Greenaway, Sydney Arts Guide

 

“Brilliant, mesmerising, amazing Sydney talent. Innovative. A must see.” – Audience member

 

Audiences are invited to witness this unmissable event; a story of malevolent ambition and uncanny horror performed with Ninefold’s hallmark power and precision for a strictly limited season of only four shows.

Wyrd: The Season of The Witch received its debut season at PACT in June and is returning this Halloween with beguiling NEW material that will make it a must see for both fresh and familiar faced audiences. This is Shakespeare’s Scottish play pulled apart and remade crisp, strange and contemporary. 'Wyrd' sees a powerful warrior identified only as ‘Our Lady’ unleashed the malevolence of the Wyrd Ones upon the world in the hopes of satiating her burning ambition to be crowned. But all debts must be paid and Our Lady’s triumphs quickly decompose into a nefarious nightmare of Lynchian horror. The devil truly is in the detail of this tightly choreographed performance. Featuring 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. Do not miss this return season of Wyrd: “you won’t have seen another Shakespeare adaptation quite like it.” (Jason Blake, Audrey Journal)
