  2. From NoExit Performance
    noexitperformance.org/

    One part Shakespeare, one part Freud, and one part Parnassus, NoExit invites you inside this hospital turned imaginarium to witness how susceptible we are to the power of our own imaginings; there's nothing more terrifying than that which we can only imagine.

    THIS IS NOT SHAKESPEARE'S MACBETH
    Adapted and Directed by Michael Burke

    Tickets: $20 General Admission | $15 Student/Senior

    The Irvington Office Center will host ...Macbeth, opening Thursday, June 13 at 8pm, for a total of nine performances, as follows:

    Thu, 6/13: 8pm
    Fri, 6/14: 8pm
    Sat, 6/15: 8pm
    Thu, 6/20: 8pm
    Fri, 6/21: 8pm
    Sat, 6/22: 8pm
    Thu, 6/27: 8pm
    Fri, 6/28: 8pm
    Sat, 6/29: 8pm

    This site-specific work examines the intrinsic connection between conscious and conscience: the idea that retribution comes from within and it is the demons of our own minds that bring us the greatest grief in the wake of our actions. Pulling from imagery and practices of sanatoriums and asylums of old, and featuring original, live soundscaping by Madison, WI-based, The Brothers Grimm, devices of hospital lore become the stuff of nightmares, transforming the hospital gallery, as the wards take an active role as characters and scene-setters in the mania of two particular patients who seem to be violently reliving the events in their lives that continue to torture their souls.

    Bio & Performance notes from Brothers Grimm:

    Original Theater Score
    composed & recorded by The Brothers Grimm
    engineered & performed by BRAIN GRIMMER
    setup: Ableton Live 8 > Akai APC 40 & KM QuNeo

    For over a decade the Brothers Grimm (Madison, WI) have been performing string music together on guitar, cello, and Chinese string instruments. They draw upon musical experiences abroad (BC: Chinese music in Hong Kong / AJ: Flamenco in Granada, Spain) in addition to contemporary classical music, forming flexible approaches in composition and improvisation. In recent years, the Brothers Grimm have found a niche composing & performing live scores for dance, theater, & film. ||Theater scores include: Talk Like a Real Person (2008), Mary's Wedding (Indiana Repertory Theatre, 2010), The Lives of Cut Flowers (Indy Fringe Theater, PaperStrangers, 2011), SHINSAI (Victory Gardens Biograph Theater, American Blues Theater, 2012), A Midsummer Night's Dream (Bartell Theatre, Strollers Theatre 2013) ||CDs available for purchase at show: $15 - Redolent Spires (2012) - Brothers Grimm // $10 - COLIAS 1 (2013) - V/A 2xCD Experimental-Ambient Compilation Curated by GrimmusiK & Mine All Mine Records ~ more info at GrimmusiK.com

    Notes on the Score:

    The concept for this score involved setting a foley/sound-design score > No melody & rhythm, but dissonant, atonal harmony, soundscapes & uncomfortable textures. We began by going into Bradbury's Coffee (Madison, WI) after hours and recording every sound that triangular room was capable of. AJ was our sound-guide as we recorded: room noise, beams, ladders, stools, tables, washing machines, refrigerators, espresso machines, coffee grinders, various water drips, toilets, knives, and general kitchen-ware. With this Bradbury's audio (recorded by Jon Brumbaugh) and other foley recorded at home, we've created roughly 100 Sound Libraries for MACBETH - each library housing up to 128 ten-octave, velocity/pressure sensitive Sample Instruments. The end result is about 2,300 custom-constructed sample instruments nested into one-channel (maximum of 16,384 instruments per channel). Controlling these sounds in real time with Ableton Live 8 through Akai APC 40 & Keith McMillen QuNeo midi controllers, we hope to instantaneously surprise, inspire, pace, & effect the actors performances with our live sound-experiments.

    Special thanks to Bradbury’s Coffee for letting us record ALL of the sounds in their space! Also, thank you Jon Brumbaugh for recording audio & Glynnis Ritchie for taking excellent video during the Bradbury's recording session!
