“Never there. Talking to Macbeth” emerges from a spoken voice, who pronounces words. the meaning of these words disappears; the rhythm and the unique sound of the voice is what we are going to hear in this work. The irregular –but natural– rhythm that is produced unconsciously when we read, think or talk.
This time the voice, the oboe, reads Macbeth in a intimate and close way.
