Macbeth (The Notes) is a sort of a theatre performance on the creative process of directing a play. On an empty stage the director hands his notes over to actors, technicians and the creative team just after one of the public previews of his new staging of William Shakespeare’s Macbeth. The show is not quite ready and the director aims to give his actors all his good advice and tips so that they are prepared and ready for the opening.

Successively inspired and exasperated, and often lost, the director comments on his notes. Throughout this work session he will vigorously defend the avant-gardist principles of his method (still somewhat confidential) known as the method of distortion. For this, he praises the genius of his German video designer Rainer, then showers the lead actor Jean-Marc, a celebrity from TV plays and talk shows, either with obsequious flattery or with violent blame.

Macbeth (The Notes) is not only a sort of a chaotic trip through the brain of a creative artist, but also a gripping insight into the obsessional devotion that Shakespeare’s great plays can inspire, and into the thousand and one ways of staging them.
