Following their triumphant production of The Changeling in 2006 and the world premiere in Luxembourg of Cymbeline in 2007, the "famously fearless" Cheek by Jowl returns to the Grand Théâtre de Luxembourg to present Shakespeare's Macbeth.

Macbeth is the great tragedy of the imagination. A man and a woman, bound together in ambition, are destroyed in a welter of blood. Cheek by Jowl's ensemble conjures Shakespeare's world of witchcraft, ghosts and apparitions in an hallucinatory experience of sound and shadow.

Working in English, French and Russian, Cheek by Jowl have established an international reputation for bringing 'fresh life to the classics using intense, vivid performances like a laser of light to set the text ablaze' (The Guardian). Founded by Declan Donnellan and Nick Ormerod in the company has toured to over 300 cities in 40 countries and is an Associate Company at the Barbican, London.

» Ce Macbeth est une page de l'histoire d'une force extraordinaire signé Declan Donnelan, un fabuleux directeur d'acteurs. Sans décor et en costumes contemporains, les acteurs, par leurs seuls gestes, touchent à un réalisme époustouflant. À voir d'urgence. Le Soir

» Avec sa voix chaude et rauque, le Macbeth de Will Keen capte l'attention dès sa première réplique et fascine deux heures durant. [...] Au terme de ces deux tours d'horloge (en version originale surtitrée) dans l'implacable vision shakespearienne, le public de la première applaudit en cadence pendant plus de six minutes une troupe au bord de l'épuisement physique, baignée dans la claire fatigue d'avoir mené à bien un rite tenant de l'exorcisme et de la catharsis collective. Yes, they can. La Libre Belgique

» Cheek by Jowl's enduring gift to theatre is its uncanny ability to live in an eternal, precarious present. Daily Telegraph
