The lost soul of Lady Macbeth invites the audience to experience her nightmare of desperate cravings, unfulfilled desires, and ultimate loss. Lady M relates the story of Shakespeare's Macbeth solely through her perspective, using Butoh (Japanese avant-garde dance), movement, and various texts to put you inside the mind and body of one of the Bard's most famous villians.




Created and performed by Lucy Wang

All her life, Lucy Wang has been told one billion Asians are counting on her to represent, to be a model minority, so they might one day become Asian Americans too. That's a lot of pressure, and a lot of laughs. Come laugh for long time.
