Christiane Jatahy: The Walking Forest

Brazil - U.S. Premiere

“Mysterious and satisfying... a thrillingly sensory experience, inviting responses to film, music, Brazil, Africa, Shakespeare – and third-world politics.” – Artsdesk

“Powerful. Jatahy urges the audience to resist inequality, and push back against the dictators of our world… to expose today’s real-world ‘Macbeths’.” Overdose, Amsterdam

U.S. Premiere

Christiane Jatahy - Live Cinema - "The Walking Forest" - 24s from REDCAT on Vimeo.

RUNNING TIME: 55 minutes

Who are the modern day Macbeths? After her “stunning” and “ingenious" Strindberg adaptation Julia at REDCAT last year, Christiane Jatahy returns to Los Angeles with The Walking Forest. Inspired by Shakespeare’s Macbeth, she urgently explores the impact of greedy political and economic power systems on citizens of the world.

REDCAT is brilliantly re-configured for the internationally acclaimed project — a powerful multimedia experience mixing film, theater and music with profound emotional and political impact.

A deep, pulsing music mix sets the pace as the audience is surrounded by a multi-projector visual installation, which artfully confronts issues of human rights, greed and corruption in today’s political climate. The event transforms into a live film event, creating a forceful, modernized Macbeth. Breaking down the boundaries between fact and fiction, and between theater and film, Jatahy brings the tragedy of everyday life to the surface with a rare and unforgettable emotional intensity.
