Adaptor 1 Biography Stacey Christodoulou is an important innovator in Quebec theatre. In 1991, she founded The Other Theatre, which has tackled subjects from fractals to fascism, physics to pop culture, and television to terrorism. The plays take place in theatres, warehouses, lofts, galleries, moving elevators, and shopping mall windows. Often collectively written, the scripts usually evolve out of discussion, improvisation, experimentation, and places “other than theatre.” The Other Theatre describes itself as a think tank for performance. All of this experimenting has yielded concrete results, with Christodoulou praised for her work in both francophone and anglophone circles. She was nominated as the Masques Awards’ Best Director for Pre-Paradise, Sorry Now (the first English-speaking Quebecer to be nominated outside the Best Anglophone Play category). In 1999, Human Collision/Atomic Reaction played the prestigious Festival de Théâtre des Amériques and went on to win Montreal English Critics Circle Awards for best production and director.

Synopsis The Other Theatre presents Shakespeare’s tale of ambition, murder and magic in French and Haitian Creole.

In a land ravaged by war, a loyal soldier is tempted to seize power at all costs. An honorable man turned tyrant through greed and desire, Macbeth pits himself against the natural order, his rise and fall brought to life by the force and beauty of Shakespeare’s text. A tale where the living and the dead exchange faces, where the magical and the mortal become indistinguishable, Macbeth invites the spectator into the heart of dreams and madness.
