"All the ladies in the house strut their stuff with the nobility of queens at the opening of this all-female take on Shakespeare's Scottish play, performed in Ian Wooldridge's dynamic production by a cast of twelve second year BA Acting students. This makes for a bold opening statement as they pace the catwalk-styled stage area, dressed almost identically in black, but with key personal motifs, be it for combat, the elements or for the greatest power to come."
Neil Cooper, Herald Scotland
“The body is the site where identity as defined by gender, race, and sexuality is located, performed and challenged."
"The actor’s body is used as a surface for the inscription of a visual language and identification, both real and projected from stereotypes. Actors are investigating the temporality contingency and instability of the body; identity is “acted out” on its own and through the use of props and pieces of costume. Through the use of accepted signs and signifiers codes of gender, race, role in society etc are investigated.”
