LADY M 5.1 is a screen adaptation of Lady Macbeth’s soliloquy from William Shakespeare’s Macbeth—Act 5, Scene 1—in which Lady Macbeth, after inciting her husband into committing regicide, is destined to relive her most tragic moment in a never-ending loop, under the watchful gaze of a new bio-mechanical lifeform. The cyclical installation depicts a parallel universe, where the audience can witness, among the shadows and sounds, the alternative dimension in which Lady Macbeth is now destined to dwell.
Directed by Mariano Baino, starring Coralina Cataldi Tassoni, accompanied by an installation designed by Baino & Cataldi-Tassoni.
