cult / phenomenon / destroys Shakespeare

Daughter of a theatre legend and a prima ballerina, award-winning actress Mark Wilson dissects her own story and her next job: being directed by her father as Lady Macbeth. Grand performances, whispered confessions, and booming self-mockery combine as she prepares, promotes and performs the role of her life.

MKA: Unsex Me is somewhere between stand-up comedian Bill Hicks, the In-Yer-Face British playwrights of the 1990s and the Royal Shakespeare Company. It’s post-dramatic drag theatre steeped in controversial, dark comedy. Solo writer/performer Mark Wilson is an International Fellow of Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre in London and also a graduate and commisioned artist of Monash University and Victorian College of the Arts. Visual designer Amaya Vecellio is a break-out talent who recently graduated from Victorian College of the Arts and elevates the show to a level of high-art/high-fashion spectacle including a dress made of a platoon of Scottish kilts.

“Engagement with issues of gender and its presentations; celebrity and its excesses; with Macbeth and its possible interpretations in a post-Freudian, post-feminist world is powerfully thought-provoking.” Marginallia
