Chicago Repertory Ballet's director Wade Schaaf choreographed the modern narrative ballet Macbeth — based on the tragic Shakespearean tale of ambition, lust, and murder. We designed three acts of immersive animation to amplify the dynamic and bold character of this production, which were completely refreshed in 2019 to be featured at Athenaeum Theatre and prepared for a touring production in the coming years.
"Pobojewski’s shifting, often abstracted projections tower at the rear and line the balcony level along the sides, enclosing audience and dancers alike in this horrifying story... Contemporary war images, especially a long-held shot of a tank in a rubble-strewn desert, are especially potent." — Chicago Tribune
"Pobojewski’s projections... brilliantly capitalized on elements of this space…" — See Chicago Dance
