Harry Napier in Macbeth of Fire and Ice, Arcola Theatre
Macbeth of Fire and Ice is a fast paced, high energy and dynamic telling of the story of Macbeth, influenced by Norse mythology. The raw brutality of the Vikings, the Valkyries legendary powers of persuasion, a mystic forest covered in Nordic lights, earth incessantly bubbling, spewing volcanic eruptions and hissing hot springs make Macbeth of Fire and Ice.
The brutality of the actions will leave you with goose bumps… …and still, the production sets out to sympathise with Macbeth and Lady Macbeth. The drive to fulfill an ambition is within every human being. Nowadays the moral boundaries of where and when to stop and control this drive have become increasingly blurred. Recognising continuously diminishing morals in every day’s news, it may be easier for us to understand the actions of a couple that cannot see another way out other than continuing to murder in order to protect themselves. The resulting madness and death may seem a high price to pay today…
The performance is accompanied by an exceptional exhibition by award winning photographer Ragnar Th. Sigurdsson, showing captivating images of the land where Macbeth of Fire and Ice is set.
The cast is an ensemble of British actors who are also trained in music, movement and martial arts. The cast includes Alex Britton, Mark Ebulue, Molly Gromadzki, Joseph Macnab, Harry Napier and Ben Syder.
