2-13 Aug, 10.30pm -  Macbeth: Who Is That Bloodied Man?

Macbeth: Who Is That Bloodied Man?: Known worldwide for their stunning Carmen Funebre, Fringe First winners Biuro Podrozy present a visually captivating interpretation of Macbeth. 'Translating the language of Shakespeare into a series of exhilarating vignettes, Macbeth gets at the dark, haunting essence of the play (New York Times).  'It's one long and exhilarating blast of images wrapped around thundering music, licking flames and wafting smoke' It's a production that shows this magnificent Polish company at its best, and a reminder that large-scale outdoor theatre really can be thoughtful, as well as an eyeful (Guardian).

14 Aug, 10.30pm - Carmen Funebre - charity performance in support of Amnesty International

Carmen Funebre: Fringe First and Critics' Award-winning performance. 'An unforgettable dramatisation of war' (Observer). 'Terrifying and highly recommended' (Guardian). 'A contemporary performance created with theatrical skill and the sensitivity of an open nerve, a poetic piece devoid of euphemism' (Espectador). Created in 1994, Carmen Funebre was inspired by the war in ex-Yugoslavia, and other ethnic conflicts, as well as world-wide outbreaks of nationalism and intolerance. It describes war from the victims' point of view and shows the universal images of the condition of displaced people. It has been presented in 50 countries all over the world.Charity Performance

16-26 Aug, 9.00pm - Planet Lem

Planet Lem: Re-directing their interests into the future, Teatr Biuro Podróży present a sci-fi performance inspired by Stanislaw Lem's fiction, his satirical and poignant diagnosis of the contemporary world on the relationship between technological progress and the limitations of the human race. Technological acceleration enables people to create and satisfy needs while at the same time introduces virtually unlimited possibilities for control and manipulation. Planet Lem is a future land which has become a false paradise. The longing for the sacred, a fantastic decorum, and dreams of a better world make sci-fi today one of the reservoirs for romantic thinking in general sense.
