Vault Festival 2016: The Devil Speaks True
A visceral performance immersig you into the journey of a soldier returning home
London’s biggest arts festival is returning: make your way underground for six weeks of creativity, innovation and chaos at Vault Festival. With more than 100 different shows spread across eight incredible venues, you're not going to find anything else like it above or below ground any time soon. The Devil Speaks True is a chilling visceral experience with you, the audience, cast as Banquo from Macbeth in an adventure tracing Banquo's journey from bloody battlefield to spectral banquet table. Sitting in darkness for a large part of the production and wearing wireless headphones, you will be surrounded by a world created through binaural sound, video projection and live performance. The Devil Speaks True is a total immersive experience offering an intimate perspective of a man struggling to come to terms with his place in a violent and tyrannical world. Focussing on the physiological effects on men returning home from war and the bond between soldiers, the production intersperses Shakespeare's text with interviews with ex-servicemen. The show takes place in the Cage space. Running time is approximately 1 hour.
"Sweetly inventive and brazenly original.”
