Macbeth receives an Indian makeover
Shakespeare’s bloodiest tale is retold in April at the Theatre Royal as Tara Arts in association with Queen’s Hall Arts and Black Theatre take the stage with Macbeth.
Three outrageously weird sisters cook up an explosive brew of treachery, ambition and passion setting a modern Asian family off on a path of bloody self destruction.
Tara Arts brings Indian movement and live music to Shakespeare’s classic text, offering a powerful contemporary take on his darkest play.
Starring Robert Mountford (Silent Witness) and Shaheen Khan (Bend it Like Beckham) as Lady Macbeth, the play runs from April 14 to 18.
There is also the chance to enjoy a taste of Bollywood on April 17 when Tina Vallance of Jaya Dance hosts a Bollywood dance session - come along and enjoy a dance taster complete with costumes, ankle bells and bindis.
The session costs £3 per person and must be booked in advance.
Tara Arts is a pioneer in providing black, Asian and minority ethnic artists with a voice and a space to share their respective cultural heritages with all audiences.
Tickets fo Macbeth cost from £8.50 to £20.50.
