Description

'Great business must be wrought ‘ere … boodjar baal waaliny.'

Hecate, queen of the witches, is usually omitted from productions of Shakespeare’s Macbeth. Here, she is at the heart of everything, watching as Macbeth strives toward power at any cost, all the while knowing that order must be restored; that Country always trumps human ambition and greed.

In 1833 colonist Robert Menli Lyon wrote in reference to Noongar people that ‘the whole of each tribe are bards’. This world premiere event puts those words to the test. Having spent years studying and reclaiming their endangered Noongar language, a star ensemble use this audacious adaptation as a springboard to showcase its poetic and expressive qualities.

Join us for Australia's first large-scale Shakespeare production entirely in Noongar language, the original language of the south west of Western Australia, as conceived by Kyle J Morrison. Adapted and directed by Kylie Bracknell [Kaarljilba Kaardn]. 

A post-show Q&A will take place after the show on Feb 11 and a schools performance will take place on Feb 12
