Information

This production by the “enfant terrible” of provocative dance theater has, in the meantime, become a classic. Johann Kresnik created a furor when it was first staged in 1988.  Gaudy, while at the same time highly aesthetic is the best way to describe the work of the Austrian provocateur of the dance world with his take on adverse social and political trends. Kresnik’s Macbeth originated during the zenith of the Barschel-Pfeiffer affair in the Federal Republic of Germany in 1987 and poignantly illustrates the sanguinary battle for power.
