Waking Dream, The

Synopsis
Animation. A short animation that explores the images of Lady Macbeth unveiling them through her sleepwalking state exploring the themes of guilt and responsibility. It particularly plays with the ‘bloody hand’ motif and the Lady’s inability to ‘out damned spot’. The conjured images are re-creations and re-interpretations of popular images of Lady Macbeth that can be found in theatre, film, posters and the broader media.
