About Hackney Empire's MacBeth
Following a two-week performance at the internationally renowned Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Hackney Empire's new Graduate Theatre Company, TWIST, return to London to perform their first production, a 21st century take on Macbeth. Directed by Susie McKenna, it's Shakespeare-meets-Channel 4’s Empire with music, dance and a lot of attitude.
Imagine the youths of today making a musical adaptation of Shakespeare through sharing and combining influences – street, R&B, hip hop, spoken word and jazz – to create their own magic.
TWIST Theatre company is a dynamic creative group of individuals, who have found a way to tell Shakespeare in a way that feels true to them.
