Spend the night with Macbeth at Erno Goldfinger’s Balfron Tower

Posted at 4:15 pm, June 16, 2014 in Arts & Entertainment, Fun London

Fancy hanging out in Erno Goldfinger’s Balfron Tower for the night in the name of art? Look no further than RIFT’s immersive production of ‘Macbeth’, which, it was announced today, will be staged in the Poplar residential tower block. 

Big, Brutalist and built in 1963, the block is a precursor to Goldfinger’s Trellick Tower in north Kensington and will be used by the theatre company as the immersive venue for Shakespeare’s bloody and violent tragedy.

The show follows RIFT’s (formerly RETZ’s) site specific, run-around production of Kafka’s ‘The Trial’ and takes place all night (8pm to 8am) in the tower block. All we know is that on a clear morning you can seen most of London’s epic skyline from the top, which is definitely a view worth staying up all night for.

Tickets are currently sold out but follow @RIFT___ for the latest ticket releases. Find out more about RIFT’s ‘Macbeth‘ and check out more immersive theatre in London.
