Premiere – 27 October 2010
«Killbeth» is heroic action-drama, based on William Shakespeare’s «Macbeth». It is an elaborate work by director Koh Sun-woong and the members of Playfactory Mabangzen. The authors of the performance have brought the action into the future and added some initially Korean symbols and more dynamic action so that we may demonstrate the original work’s energy.
The performance is full humor that reduces the heavy mood of the original while maintaining the serious and tragic elements.
«Our world is full of happenings that defy our imaginations and surprise us. These are events that we could not even dream of. Unfortunately, because we only perceive these events with our physical senses, we either don’t believe them, or ignore them. However, if we take the time to really examine them, we can find that there exist compelling, profound truths. What’s more, when they take place on that place we call a stage, they become somehow magical. I am a playwright who usually focuses on such things.»
