Airplane pilots to DPAC: "Out, damned spot! Out I say!"?

Posted by on Wed, Oct 22, 2008 at 11:29 AM

By the pricking of our thumbs, something WICKED this way comes....

Bull City Rising's been all over this, and now BCR has further confirmation of the construction of a Jaume Plensa installation at DPAC. It will be located on the northwest side of the facility.

And he's got the deets: Relatively inexpensive at about $100,000 (excluding the commissioning, construction and maintenance costs), it's going to be a "sculpted disc" that will project light up into the air--so much of it, in fact, that the operators of DPAC will have to keep the operators of Raleigh-Durham International Airport apprised of the lighting schedule.

The weird part is that the disc will contain snippets of dialogue from Shakespeare's Macbeth, which—if you spend any time around actors you know this—is the infamous, accursed "Scottish play," not to be mentioned by name. Here are the lines, as quoted in an Oct. 16 memo to City Manager Thomas Bonfield.

MACBETH: I heard a voice cry. 'Sleep no more!'

LADY MACBETH: What do you mean?

MACBETH: Still it cried 'Sleep no more' to all the house:/ 'Glamis hath murdered sleep, and therefore Cawdor/ shall sleep no more, Macbeth shall sleep no more.'

We love the Scottish play, but this could be a heavy curse burden to place upon a 2,800-seat box that's counting on bringing the kids and the grandparents into things like Wicked and Legally Blonde: The Musical.

For the record, the quotations are from the Scottish play, Act II, Scene ii, 46-55.
