  2. "MACBETH" is a concert interpretation of Shakespeare's original text that was conceived out of Zuidpool's first reading of the play in English. The company's core trio (Jorgen Cassier, Koen van Kaam & Sofie Decleir) was struck by the musicality in Shakespeare's original text when they read it in English. Rather than stage a literal fully-realized theatre production in Dutch, the company chose to stage "MACBETH" in English as a raw, minimal live concert, equipped with an original score by two of Belgium's greatest alternative musicians Mauro Pawlowski & Tijs Delbeke.
    "MACBETH" is a music theatre deconstruction of one of Shakespeare's most recognizable works. A dynamic and feverish production that borders between underground opera and rock concert.
    The performance is still available for touring, and can be supertitled in different languages (English spoken and sung).
