Step onto the blasted heath of war-torn Scotland and witness the private deeds of three Weird Sisters, caught between the bloody business of Macbeth’s tragedy and their own destructive sibling rivalry. In an innovative form of storytelling, WEIRD opens up vertical space as the Witches climb, twist and move through the air, harnessing wild elements and conjuring the haunting forces that will lead Macbeth to his end.
Based on Shakespeare’s MACBETH, WEIRD blends an original script with circus arts, stage combat, and original music.
