Lately I have been reading Macbeth several times, so I was well prepared when I arrived at The National Theatre of Iceland last night. I could not understand many words of the play, but I knew the plot. Still it was quite hard to follow last night´s story, where Àgùst played Macduff´s brave son.
Understanding or no understanding.
It didn´t matter much. My goal of coming here was to watch my nephew.
And I did. Oh yes, I did.
After the play Àgùst had promised to take me backstage.
Not at all an easy task, as everything on the scene was covered in blood.
Oh my! What a macabre play Macbeth is!
Yes, I am the aunt from Norway.
The very proud aunt from Norway.
I am not Àgùst´s only fan though.
Embla, I think it is time the two of us start a fan club :-)
"Look tante BrittArnhild. Here is the blood we use when we are killed"
Thank you Àgùst, Embla and Stine for a wonderful night.
I will be back for Àgúst´s next play!
By the way, because of Àgùst´s long hair, some people believe he is a girl.
Take a look here to see his answer to that three years ago (Ardi, I am sure you remember it)
