Chamber Macbeth is a show created by Rapid Descent in the style of dance/theatre that we invented and tirelessly explore/elaborate on: Cumulative Theatre.
Cumulative Theatre asks the question: ‘How can live theatre be easier for an audience to connect to?’ and answers this question by exploring a seamless, real time, physical and profound connection between live music, words and movement; enabling these mediums to be combined with cumulative effect to create work with many possible entry/connection points for an audience.
Chamber Macbeth is based on Shakespeare’s Macbeth, with live brass trio, live vocal score and using a loop station (which digitally records and plays back sound samples onstage, and will be used to create a multilayered live sound score). It has a cast of 10 performers who work vocally, physically and with text and includes a brass trio made up of two trumpets and a French horn. All of the music is original and composed by Aaron Priskorn who is one of the trumpet players in the trio.
Cast: Maria Leigh, Alex Lyndon, Ryan Marchand, Sabrina De Mio, Matthew DePasquale, Aaron Priskorn, Stephanie Rickard, Sam Ritchie, Soren Santos, Maura Tang, Graham Taylor.
