“Stars, hide your fires;
Let not light see my dark and black desires."
Past is Prologue Productions in association with The Filigree Theatre presents
Shakespeare in the Dark: Macbeth.
Opening live on Halloween at the Driskill Hotel, Shakespeare in the Dark: Macbeth is an immersive horror, live theatre experience performed entirely in pitch blackness. The removal of visual overstimulation leads to a state of sensory deprivation, leading audience members to appreciate why Shakespeare is still performed 400 years after his death: it's all about the language.
In addition, theatre performed fully in darkness is theatre that is inherently accessible to audience members who are blind or visually impaired, a demographic often denied full and equal access to theatre.
