Program Notes

Punchdrunk explores the space between the theatrical and cinematic. For us, this building offers a multitude of cinematic framings, each charged with emotion. Exploring the space individually, the audience is given the opportunity to both act in and direct their own film; to revisit, to edit and to indulge themselves as voyeurs. Like a Hitchco*ck film, the audience is plunged into the world of the unknown and left to piece the puzzle together. Screen dialogues become intense physical duets between characters and the body becomes the site of debate. Spoken words rarely find their way into our world; we are excited by the human body as a primary source of emotive storytelling.

We took Macbeth as a source and fused it with Hitchco*ck’s aesthetic because for us they are a perfect match. Macbeth is Shakespeare’s most fear-filled play; husbands fear for their wives, mothers fear for their children, and children fear for their lives. Hitchco*ck’s protagonists, like those in Macbeth, hover on the edge of tempestuous instability; in Sleep No More characters from Hitchco*ck films permeate the world, wandering through Macbeth’s story. The young Mrs. de Winter from Hitchco*ck’s Rebecca is searching for her lost husband – Shakespeare’s Duncan – and is bullied by the Macbeths’ cruel housekeeper – Hitchco*ck’s Mrs. Danvers. Shakespeare and Hitchco*ck collide in Punchdrunk’s world which will, we hope, offer a fresh perspective on these two enigmatic artists.

Program NotesVery Superstitious

By Paul Stacey

Every line of Shakespeare’s Macbeth is embedded in the multiple languages — sound, light, design, and dance — of Sleep No More. Punchdrunk has woven Shakespeare’s language into the fabric of the entire building, saturating each room with superstitions. The following superstitions have inspired scenes in Sleep No More.

BABIESAnything that touches on the precarious health and welfare of babies is a focus for superstitions. The rocking of an empty cradle is considered extremely bad luck. It has also been thought that newborns should be wrapped in old clothes. Wrapping a baby in an old shirt belonging to its father would ensure the baby grew up strong.

MIRRORSMirrors are known to protect the soul and should therefore be guarded lest the soul be lost. Mirrors should be removed from a sickroom, as the soul is more vulnerable during these times, and covered after a death, to stop the souls of the living from being carried off by a ghost:

The custom of covering, not looking-glasses only, but various articles in the apart-ment where the corpse is laid was a well-known custom in Scotland. Different individuals have different whims; for example, I have heard of persons…turn[ing] the face of a portrait of the deceased… Glasgow Notes and Queries, 1888

If one looks into a mirror at night they will see the devil.

A bowl of water with a knife inside it, placed by a doorway, is believed to keep out witches. Seeing its own reflection in the water and believing its soul to be pierced by the knife, the witch will flee.

PEAco*ckSPeaco*ck feathers have long been regarded as unlucky. Many people refuse to have them in their house or handle anything made with them. They are particularly bad luck when used in theater productions.

Peaco*ck screaming is also considered an ill omen:

A Devonshire friend tells me of peaco*ck screaming being considered to forebode death (just the same as a dog howling), and a notable instance of the fact actually happened a few months ago in this house. Folk Lore Journal, 1883

Paul Stacey is a second-year dramaturgy student in the A.R.T./MXAT Institute for Advanced Theater Training at Harvard University.

Program NotesHAIRIt was once believed that witches had the power to attract any person whose hair had fallen into their hands. Hair was also used in spells; it could be mixed with the wax for an image which, melted slowly before a fire, would cause the person represented to waste away.

WITCH BOTTLEThe heart of a bewitched animal, if pierced with pins, was believed to cause a witch excruciating pain. In cases of bewitched humans a similar effect was achieved by placing items in a bottle which was then buried or put in a heap, depending on whether fast or slow torture was desired. Contents of bottles varied but tended to include nails or thorns, plus pieces of the victim’s hair, fingernails, or urine.

DEATH KNOCKSKnocking is considered an omen of death. When someone is on their death bed, three knocks on the door signifies that they have three days until they die.

BIRDSA bird appearing at a window was widely interpreted as an ill omen; if there was a sick person in the household it was taken as evidence that they would die.

In Scotland it was believed that the swallow had the blood of the Devil in its veins. The bird carried two precious stones within its body: a red one to cure insanity and a black one thought to bring good luck.

CARDSThe nine of diamonds has become known as the ‘Curse of Scotland’:

It was thought that before the Battle of Culloden in 1746 Charles Edward Stuart was playing cards with the Laird of Macintosh at his Inverness house. The Nine of Diamonds was dropped from the table and lost. Some time later when the Duke of Cumberland stayed at the house the card was found and the Duke used it to authorise a death warrant. Chambers: Scottish Superstitions, 1990

SALT A dish of salt was placed on the breast of a corpse as soon as possible after the death and it remained there until the body had been placed in the coffin. In some cases the salt was mixed with earth on a wooden platter and then placed on the corpse. The earth was an emblem of the corruptible body, the salt an emblem of the immortal soul.


Macbeth opens with thunder and lighting, as three witches are plotting their meeting with Macbeth, the Thane of Glamis. Macbeth and Banquo soon encoun-ter the witches on a heath. The first witch hails Macbeth as “Thane of Glamis,” the second as “Thane of Cawdor,” and the third proclaims, “All hail, Macbeth, that shalt be King hereafter!” The witches then prophesize that Banquo will father a line of kings, though he himself will never be one. As quickly as the witches vanish, a messenger arrives with news from King Duncan: Macbeth has been named Thane of Cawdor. With the witches’ prophecies starting to come true, Macbeth begins to harbor ambitions of becoming king. He shares the predictions with his wife, Lady Macbeth, who becomes consumed with her husband’s potential ascent to the throne. When Duncan announces that he plans to visit Macbeth at his castle, Lady Macbeth concocts a scheme to kill the king and secure the throne for her husband. Macbeth is reluctant to go along with his wife’s plan of regicide, but Lady Macbeth convinces him to commit the murder.

Macbeth kills Duncan in the middle of the night and is immediately trau-matized by his actions. Lady Macbeth is forced to assume control of their plan. Duncan’s son, Malcolm, discovers his father’s body and flees to hatch a plan with Banquo and Macduff to avenge his father’s death. With Malcolm and the rightful heirs gone, Macbeth, a kinsman to Duncan, assumes the throne as the new King of Scotland.

Macbeth is soon consumed with the witches’ prophesies for Banquo. When he receives word that Banquo will be leaving that night, Macbeth murders Banquo. With the burden of his guilt wearing him down, Macbeth sees Banquo’s ghost at the royal banquet. His guests, however, see only an empty chair. As Macbeth screams at the apparition, Lady Macbeth forces everyone out of the banquet hall, desperate to keep her husband silent.

Macbeth visits the three witches again and is warned to “beware Macduff,” but also told that “none of woman born shall harm Macbeth.” The witches’ last prophesy to Macbeth is that he “will never vanquish’d be until Great Birnam Wood to high Dunsinane Hill shall come against him.” With Macduff gone, Macbeth decides to kill all who reside in Macduff’s home, including Macduff’s heavily preg-nant wife. The crimes that Lady Macbeth and her husband have committed rack her with guilt. As she sleepwalks through the castle, she futilely tries to wash imaginary blood off of her hands.

When Malcom and Macduff learn that Macbeth has murdered Lady Macduff, they return to seek revenge. They take Macbeth by surprise by cutting down trees to camouflage themselves as they encroach on the castle, thus fulfilling the witch-es’ third prophesy. As the forces draw closer, Macduff and Macbeth are eventually locked in confrontation.

Creative Team

About PunchdrunkBritish theatre company Punchdrunk is the acknowledged pioneer of a new form of immersive theatre, in which roaming audiences experience epic storytelling inside intensely atmospheric theatrical worlds. Blending classic texts, physical performance, award-winning design installation, and unexpected sites, the company’s infectious for-mat transports the viewer from the passive familiarity of conventional theatre to a state of activated imagination.

Since 2000, the company has developed a phenomenal reputation for transformative productions that focus as much on the audience and the performance space as on the performers and narrative. Inspired designers occupy deserted buildings and apply a cinematic level of detail to immerse the audience in the world of the play. Punchdrunk rejects the passive obedience expected of audiences in conventional theatre. Its audi-ences rediscover the childlike excitement and anticipation of exploring the unknown, and experience a real sense of adventure. Free to roam the installed environment in an individual sensory journey, they choose what to watch and where to go. This is a unique theatrical experience where the line between performer and spectator is extraordinarily blurred. Audiences experience the essence of participation, shedding their customary identity to more deeply follow and enjoy their own imaginations.

The AMERICAN REPERTORY THEATER (A.R.T.) is one of the country’s most celebrated resident theaters and the winner of numerous awards — including the Tony Award, the Pulitzer Prize, and numerous local Elliot Norton and I.R.N.E. Awards. In 2002 the A.R.T. was the recipient of the National Theatre Conference’s Outstanding Achievement Award, and in May of 2003 it was named one of the top three theaters in the country by Time magazine.

Founded by Robert Brustein in 1980, during its twenty-nine year history the A.R.T. has welcomed major American and international theater artists, presenting a diverse repertoire that includes new American plays, bold reinterpretations of classical texts, and provocative new music theater productions. The A.R.T. has performed throughout the U.S. and worldwide in twenty-one cities in sixteen countries on four continents. It has presented over two hundred productions, over half of which were premieres of new plays, translations, and adaptations.

The A.R.T. is also a training ground for young artists. The theater’s artistic staff teaches undergraduate classes in acting, directing, dramatic literature, dramaturgy, design, and playwriting at Harvard University, and in 1987 the A.R.T. founded the Institute for Advanced Theater Training at Harvard University. In conjunction with the Moscow Art Theater School, the Institute provides world-class graduate level training in acting, dramaturgy, and voice.

Last fall the A.R.T. welcomed its new Artistic Director, Diane Paulus. Under her leadership, the Theater has developed a new initiative, EXPERIENCE THE A.R.T., which seeks to revolutionize the theater experience through a sustained commitment to empowering the audience. This initiative recognizes that theater is not just a play on the stage, but also a social occasion for people to come together and experience community. This audience-driven vision speaks directly to the A.R.T.’s core mission — “to expand the boundaries of theater.” By expanding its focus to include the audience’s total theater experience, the A.R.T. seeks to give audiences a voice, a sense of ownership, and a feeling of importance in the theatrical event.

MOSCOW ART THEATER SCHOOL Anatoly Smeliansky, Head

The Institute for Advanced Theater Training at Harvard was established in 1987 by the American Repertory Theater (A.R.T.) as a training ground for the American theatre. Its programs are fully integrated with the activities of the A.R.T. In the summer of 1998 the Institute commenced a historic joint program with the Moscow Art Theater (MXAT) School. Students engage with two invaluable resources: the work of the A.R.T. and that of the MXAT, as well as their affiliated schools. Together, this exclusive partnership offers students opportunities for training and growth unmatched by any program in the country.

The core program features a rigorous two-year, five-semester period of training in acting, dramaturgy, and special studies, during which students work closely with the professionals at the A.R.T. and the MXAT as well as with the best master teachers from the United States and Russia. At the end of the program, students receive a Certificate of Achievement from the faculty of the American Repertory Theater and an M.F.A. Degree from the faculty of the Moscow Art Theatre School.

Further information about this new program can be obtained by calling the Institute for a free catalog at (617) 496-2000 or going to our web site at www.amrep.org.

Thank you for taking Punchdrunk¹s magical journey this evening!

I am so thrilled that my first season at the A.R.T. introduces London¹s theatrical phenomenon Punchdrunk to America. By transporting the viewer from the passive familiarity of conventional theater to a state of activated imagination, Punchdrunk¹s immersiveexperiences speak directly to the mission of the A.R.T. — to “expand the boundaries of theater.” Since 2000, Punchdrunk has garnered international recognition and praise for their extraordinary work, and with this partnership with the A.R.T., they are transforming the scope and definition of theater here in America.

SLEEP NO MORE is one of several theatrical events in our Shakespeare Exploded! Festival that transform audience experience. Dance over to our new club theater venue OBERON for The Donkey Show, a retelling of A Midsummer Night¹s Dream through the great disco anthems of the 1970s. Join the revival at the Best of Both Worlds, a new R&B/gospel musical inspired by The Winter’s Tale playing at our Loeb stage. To learn more about the Festival and its accompanying shows, panels, and readings, please visit www.amrep.org. Most importantly, I¹d like to thank you, our audience, for demonstrating your adventurous spirit and willingness to engage in theater in new ways! Warmly,

Diane Paulus, Artistic Director
