FLINT — Buckham Gallery hosts Flint City Theatre’s production of William Shakespeare’s MacBeth, or The Scottish Play. MacBeth, one of the bard’s great (and murderous) tragedies, explores themes of power, ambition, deception, treachery and fate.
Performances will take place 8 p.m. Thursday – Saturday, May 19-21 and Friday-Saturday, May 26-28 at the gallery, 134 W. Second St. in Flint.
The performance is part of Buckham Gallery’s May exhibition, In The Round.
Artists explore the world of Shakespeare where power, lust, betrayal, vengeance and magic come together. Through the intricate pairing of live performance and art installation, In the Round brings one of Shakespeare’s most haunting visions to life.
The exhibit will feature artist members Todd Onweller and Amanda N. Simons of Flint, who will be creating the sweeping art installation that will provide the background for Flint City Theatre’s preformances of MacBeth.
In The Round will remain on display until June 4. Regular hours at the gallery are noon to 5:30 p.m. Tuesdays – Fridays and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. There is no admission cost to visit the gallery, but donations are encouraged.
Buckham Gallery is an artist-run, notfor profit exhibition and performance space.
Admission is $10. Tickets may be reserved by calling the gallery at 810- 239-6233 or by e-mailing the gallery’s Executive Director Jen Sikora at firstname.lastname@example.org. — G.G.
