Bruka Opens The 20th Season With Macbeth

BRÜKA THEATRE Proudly presents ~  MACBETH

 

POWER INTRIGUE DEVASTATION

(Reno, NV). The first play of the 2012-2013 season, Macbeth roars into October with a new vision by director Joe Atack. “Imagine a time and place not too far from our own. A country devastated by civil war where the fate of the nation hangs in the balance - this is where we find ourselves in Macbeth. In strange, uncertain and dangerous times the Macbeths seize power bringing with them a reign of blood and terror.  Fusing elements of the modern world and the past this production will follow the Macbeths into the darkest corners of the mind, as Shakespeare continues to prove the master of exploring the human condition”.

Written by William Shakespeare in the early 1600s, Macbeth was the first play Brüka produced in its current space at 99 N. Virginia Street in 1997.

Macbeth runs October 12 through October 26, 2012, Wednesday through Saturday shows at 8 PM with a Sunday matinee performance on October 14 at 2 PM.  Special to this performance, Attack will host a “Shakespeare Conversation” at 1:00 before the Sunday performance.  The customary matinee talkback with the company will immediately follow the performance.

EACH SHOW IS FOLLOWED BY A RECEPTION WITH THE MEDEAS

Reno, NV.  The Medea Project directed and created by Sandra Brunell Neace has been accepted into the 2012 NY International Fringe Festival and will perform in New York City in mid August 2012. The Medea Project, an original work created by Neace and the Medeas, is based on the Greek Tragedy Medea exploring maternal filicide and the responsibilities of mothers, women and citizens in modern society. Creator Sandra Brunell Neace uses themes in Euripides’ Medea, translation by Nicholas Rudall, and blends writings by the play’s cast to create a tapestry of past and present with the deeply charged issue of maternal filicide in our society.  This ancient issue driven by human motivations crosses into the current day as Neace engages the audience with multi-media and draws from true stories that have shocked and saddened our nation.

The piece features actresses from northern Nevada whose work includes professional, regional and community theatre credits.  This unique, female driven theatre piece gives the audience the opportunity to witness the different human sides of this tragic event and give voice to not only judge and jury, but to Medea who has committed the unspeakable act of child murder. The Medea Project was originally commissioned by Brüka Theatre’s Producing Artistic Director Mary Bennett as a sister piece to Oedipus and was performed on the Brüka main stage during the 2011 Artown Festival.
