a red carpet wooden staves & candles one actor barefoot in a black costume with coloured scarves for characters to conjure in the eye of the audience a sacred space for some savage rite or profane ceremony where the actor alone is sole priest & participant in the passion play of the trial suffering & death of macbeth
Macbeth is a profound study in the psychology of evil and the fall of man
From his original condition of innocence & loyalty From his temptation to his death Macbeth becomes the corruption of himself his wife & his country to defile everything that approaches him Everything that sees him Everything that he touches
The play also operates in a universe of ruthless existential logic where what one does is what one is for one becomes one's acts
This is both the tragedy of Macbeth & lady Macbeth for they believe they can perform whatever acts of horror they choose yet remain “innocent of the deed”
But in the end lady Macbeth is driven mad by the memory of what she has done & Macbeth is transformed into something he no longer recognises as himself
Was Macbeth damned from the beginning did he have a choice did the witch(es)' prophecy remove his free will and make him merely an instrument of fate
Macbeth's actions and decisions abundantly make clear fate is the life you choose

周六 一个人的「麦克白」 对人性之邪恶与人之堕落的研究
