Macbeth Taped

Synopsis
Actors and directors explore scenes from Macbeth, including scenes performed in Wapping Hydraulic Pumping Station. The film uses elements of the play as a springboard for telling stories without using words, and for counterpointing speech with an expressive and detailed physical language. Originated at the National Theatre (London) studio staged by Phyllida Lloyd.
