Daggers of the Mind


This music theatre film, inspired by Shakespeare’s Macbeth, is about the fear of failure. This ‘performative film’ is full of (partly own) lyrics, pop music, material from the opera Macbeth by Verdi, and more. Initially, the stage production’s premiere was scheduled for 21 April at the Maaspodium in Rotterdam. However, since all theatres are closed, an alternative platform had to be found for this project. For many weeks, students rehearsed from home for a real music theatre film, which was broadcasted on June 19, 2021.
