Birnam Wood

I am working on ‘Birnam Wood’ with students from University of Salford between October 2018 and January 2019. Watch this space for more information

I first began work on this project in 2004, with further development in 2010, 2011 and 2012.

It is a creative response to William Shakespeare’s ‘Macbeth’ told by women.

It has been used as a creative tool to work with the RSC, (through the RSC’s studio production development fund), undergraduate theatre and performance students, primary school children and a parks organisation in Southport.

Performance works created under its banner have been:
‘Beastly Beauties’ with the University of Birmingham and Kindle Theatre
‘The Hoarse Raven’ with Melton College and Operating Theatre
‘The Feast’ with the University of Salford
‘There To Meet With’ with Flashley Community Primary School, Stafford
‘A Scratch Showing’ with the Royal Shakespeare Company
‘Birnam Wood Comes to Hesketh Park’ a personal video essay experiment
‘The Session’ with the University of Manchester
