Shakespeare Lives is a year-long programme of international activity in the arts, education and English language teaching to celebrate the continuing resonance of William Shakespeare in 2016. The festival is supported by the British Council with content hosted and distributed by the BBC. Marking the 400th anniversary of the Shakespeare’s death, the online festival gives audiences the chance to experience the creative range of the Bard’s work and its reinterpretation by artists in all art forms.
Rambert has contributed a film of its new work Tomorrow to Shakespeare Lives. The piece inhabits the dark and dangerous world of Macbeth. Choreographer Lucy Guerin builds on her recent Young Vic production of the play to create a dance work that gives physical life to the psychological conflict that led a man to murder.
Tomorrow tours the UK from autumn 2016. It features a score by composer, sound and multimedia artist Scanner, designs by Conor Murphy and lighting by Lee Curran. The film was shot at Sadler’s Wells in London on Friday 13 May 2016, and is produced by Nylon Films.
