Inspired by the burlesque acting of silent films, this silent, bold, brutal and bloody performance takes us on a wordless journey through the ruthless pursuit of power with humour and melodramatic gestures.
A new vision of the criminal spouses in a sped-up version completely unravels Shakespeare’s tragedy. The combination of bodies, objects and stage blood is dominated by a social and emotional poignancy that depicts the futility of human life in a world without morals. The performance is supported by an impressive soundtrack and exceptional animation choreography by two puppeteers.

La Fille Du Laitier is a theatre delivery service, bringing creative and innovative theatre to your doorstep. Using a portable theatre scene attached to a delivery truck, we travel around the small communities in the City of Montreal, with the aim of democratizing art, creating a theatre that is affordable and accessible to those who may not normally get the chance to experience it. Our mandate is to produce family-friendly new texts or adaptations of classics, for the outdoor stage, and for English and French audiences alike. The company currently has five theatre productions which are also available to perform in indoor venues.
