A group of ex-drama club members come together to stage Macbeth in order to rekindle their passion for the arts they felt 10 years ago. By coming back to theatre, they find themselves re-examining their life choices and asking the same question they had before – what is the meaning and purpose of the arts in their lives?

Directed by Judy Ngo, with an original score composed by Phang Kok Jun and conducted by Moses Gay, Essentially Macbeth is a first-of-its-kind collaboration between NUS Chinese Drama and NUS Chinese Orchestra and explores what success, ambition and fulfilment mean to today’s generation.

为了重燃他们十年前对艺术的热情,一群前中文戏剧社成员再次聚集上演《麦克白》。 重返剧场后,他们开始重新检视自己的人生选择,并重新思考缠绕许久的问题——艺术在他们生活中的意义和目的是什么?


Performed in Mandarin with English surtitles.

Essentially Macbeth is presented as part of NUS Arts Festival 2023: Spaces Between.

NUS Arts Festival 2023: Spaces Between examines the idea of liminal spaces, the uncomfortable unknown as we transition between phases, and states. While liminal spaces bring discomfort and ambiguity, they also present us with opportunities for growth and positive change, physically, emotionally, and metaphorically.

In a world that is constantly divided by extreme views, NUS Arts Festival 2023: Spaces Between seeks to show how art can bring relief and recognition that there is more to gain in the spaces between.
