Synopsis: Shakespeare, dance and world music! A theater company rehearses Macbeth. A film crew documents their every move. The drama of the play intertwines with the drama of making the film. It’s unlike any version of Macbeth you have ever seen.
Celebrate Shakespeare’s 450th Birthday with us on April 23rd in Harlem [buy tickets at this link tugg.com/events/8510] and experience one of the world’s greatest dramas! Since the days of Ira Aldridge (1807-1867) African Americans have been producing multi-ethnic and explosive renditions of Shakespeare’s work. TANGO MACBETH continues that tradition. Music by Lenny Seidman and choreography by Zane Booker propel audiences to see this classic tale in a new light. If you love Shakespeare, this film is for you. If you are not familiar with Shakespeare, this film is for you! Nadine Patterson’s documentary-fiction hybrid creates an earthy, gritty and at times elegant space where the story unfolds. The film features riveting performances by Brian Anthony Wilson (Detective Holley on “The Wire”) and new comer Alexandra Bailey. Buy the film to download or stream for $7.99 at tangomacbeth.vhx.tv/.
