From Shakespeare's point of view seizing a crown is an immoral act, from Sturua's it is a savage amusement. Everybody is engaged in the murderous game...
Sturua has Brechticized everything that could be Brechticized in Shakespeare. And there was a lot of material for such interpretations, although Brecht's hypnotism came to naught back in the seventies. Therefore Sturua is the post-Brechtian theatre. He cannot manage without commentaries, speaking out everything to the last full stop. He uses Shakespeare's pieces to make a sarcastic boy who reads the story of Macbeth and activates his imagination.
