ABSTRACT

The purpose of this paper was to find out how a classic work of literature, Macbeth, can be communicated with audiences as a performance arts festival. The original version of Macbeth is based on a moral interplay between good and evil. But the modern version of Macbeth continuously tries to ask a question about the concept of the dichotomy between good and evil throughout the performance. This paper applies Bertolt Brecht's theory in the modern version of Macbeth. The modern version of Macbeth is effective from the point of view of audience participation. The modern version of Macbeth uses masks, pop music, and tranvestism as an alienation technique. In general, these tools are used so the audience can not empathize with the drama. In fact, the audience is to criticize the modern version of Macbeth. The viewpoint in the modern version of Macbeth, through alienation technique theory and epic theatre of Brecht, help people better understand the reality of contemporary society, participate in the performance festival, and experience proper communication with each other by revealing a variety of human feelings such as solitude, love, anxiety, violence, desire and joy.
