A love-story & the blood thirsty mistake that destroyed it
Macbeth, Shakespeare's most powerful tragedy will be brought to life by The Little Fish, which comprises of some of the finest and most dedicated young actors from the senior students of Southern Youth Theatre Ensemble (SYTE). Their passion and dedication in performing the works of Shakespeare is clearly evident as they now will perform what will be their sixth Shakespeare production, and promises to delight and thrill audiences.
Sleep walking scene performed by Alice Olwen before auditions were finalised as a promo for play. Alice plays Malcolm in Macbeth.
Studying acting with SYTE since she was 4 (now early 20's), Phoebe Shaw is performing in her most challenging role in this production. Phoebe Shaw has her role-of-a-lifetime in Lady Macbeth.
Director, Russell Slater has worked with Phoebe Shaw many times and says "Phoebe is a wonderfully talented and extremely down-to-dearth character actor with an ability to connect with, and engage an audience – a real story-teller.
In their usual unique style, 'The Little Fish' will present Macbeth in a variety of spaces from theatres to winery barrel halls from 30th May until 28th June 2014. For details of venues and sessions please see below.
The actors not only perform and help backstage, but participate in project managing theatre productions, and also share the various aspects of design, promotion, costumes, props, fight training, live music and concept development. And as always, they will perform in Macbeth without sets and will use the minimum of props ensuring their honest and moving performances will shine over artistic and creative inventions.
Director, Russell Slater has set this production of Macbeth in the pre-Roman period emphasising the powerful tribalism and brutality of the time, and the influences of the three Witches as the brutal murder of King Duncan throws the country into conflict, fear and uncertainty.
