The Shakespeare Center of Los Angeles cordially invites artists, arts organizations, educational institutions, and public benefit organizations in Los Angeles County to join us in a year-long exploration of Macbeth.

We are dedicating 2017 to an exploration of different ways to interpret and express perspectives on one of Shakespeare’s most powerful and enigmatic works.  

We are reaching out to artists, innovators, educators, community organizers, and catalysts for social change of all kinds, both individuals and companies; including film makers, art producers, visual artists, poets, performance artists, spoken word artists, graphic designers, choreographers, dancers, dance companies, composers, bands, singers, songwriters, to ask:

What is your take on this great play? Its themes? Characters? And plot? How does it resonate for twenty-first century Los Angelinos? Is it primarily about destiny and fate? an observation on the nature of “vaulting ambition”? Is Macbeth a vicious killer unleashed? A good man turned bad by evil forces? Is Lady Macbeth a dark heroine? Evil? A zombie? And what the heck are those witches doing?

We are interested in convening and facilitating a conversation that challenges presumptions of, and illuminates fresh insights on this timeless masterpiece and its nexus with our community.

Come to the MEETING to discuss potential collaborative projects!! 

You are invited to take a look at the text of Macbeth and stop by and share your ideas. Please RSVP to Paul@ShakespeareCenter.org if you can make it.  (Also, please contact us if you are interested in collaborating but can’t make this meeting.)
