David Greig's Dunsinane begins where William Shakespeare's Macbeth ends. The English army storms the Scottish court, topples the king, and installs a puppet ruler. However, the ensuing peacetime proves far more perilous than the blitz. Little by little, the occupiers find themselves unable to handle Scotland's internal strife, alien mentality, and baffling customs. Dunsinane, a brilliant allegory of ongoing military interventions in the Middle East, marks the fourth collaboration between director Aleksandar Popovski and Silence.

The score highlights the play's perennial topicality. In order to achieve a timeless, universal feel, the duet fused diverse elements: historical instruments (harpsichord, viol), synthesizers, Arabic-tinted vocals ...The score was written and produced in December 2015 and January 2016 at Daily Girl, Silence's private production facility.
