With three well-received performances that gained a total audience of over 300 people, Arcosanti in conjunction with Laark Productions provided a unique site-specific experience for both the theater lover and architecture enthusiast.

On Friday and Saturday, with a special late-night viewing that truly captured the richly dark essence of Shakespeare’s masterpiece, the actors of Laark Productions brought their absolute best to the stage.

The performance, which thoughtfully utilized the space of Arcosanti, began in the Crafts III Cafe, then moved into the Ceramics Apse which was transformed into the Witches’ Cave.

The North Vault was the castle for the rest of the performance. This was a truly imaginative use of the Arcosanti space.

They used their resources and talent and managed to be both innovative and minimal, providing an immersive and memorable theater experience.
