The story of the Scottish play is one many have come to know and love - with its various incarnations in TV, theatre, radio and film, the story of the tragic hero Macbeth is one which has captured the imaginations of millions.

Now, the multi-award winning Mark Bruce Company is bring their dance and theatre reimagining of the Shakespearean classic to the stage this month.

Nine performers will take to the stage and utilise dance, drama and film in an imaginative way to tell the story of the treacherous family and their world of jealousy, ambition and corruption.

The set, which has been realised by the same creative team behind the company's award-winning Dracula, shows a beautifully harrowing vision of an internal wasteland, against the backdrop of a supernatural and brutal underworld with a horror film atmosphere of menace and murder.

"Macbeth hits you fast, cuts through to the bone, and for me it is the least ambiguous of Shakespeare's plays," says Mark Bruce, the company founder.

"Its darkness opens our nightmares; we recognise fundamental traits inside ourselves and the consequences of acting upon them.

"The vicious pursuit of power to fill a void will always be relevant - the Macbeths are everywhere in every age, because they are a part of us."

But this is not the only version of Macbeth to come to London in the near future - a cinematic reinvention of the play is set to come to the Prince Charles Cinema in a one-night-only special screening.

This realisation, shot entirely on green screen under the watchful eye of director Kit Monkman, starring Luther's Mark Rowley, is a unique adaptation which aims to bridge the gap between theatre and film.

The backdrop for this adaptation uses technologically advanced methods to create the multi-tiered world of the play, including background matte painting and computer modelling, set against a green screen.

The directors says: "Macbeth is a play that's fascinated by interiority and imagine and Shakespeare's storytelling is farm from naturalistic so this seemed like an ideal opportunity to explore a more abstract theatrical approach to the screen.

Whichever version floats your boat, Shakespeare's classic tragedy is yet to be leaving our screens, especially with the level of toil and trouble creators have gone to.

Mark Bruce Company's Macbeth plays Wilton’s Music Hall in 1 Graces Alley, Whitechapel, London E1 8JB from February 23 to March 17.

The one-night-only screening of Macbeth plays at Prince Charles Cinema, Leicester Square, London, on March 13.
