MACBETH by William Shakespeare (2020)
Directed by Ed Eaton
Produced and starred in her first virtual theatre show, a spooky cut of Shakespeare's Macbeth, centered around the three witches (premiered October 2020). Isabella played Luxuria, one of the three witches.
"Hubo una actuación que, emergiendo del sfumato de su cuadrante escénico virtual, nos hizo fijar los sentidos en una actriz deseando tener el poder sobre un botón que le iluminara más su aparición sensual, cautivante, hechicera de Zoom, Luxuria, se hizo carne en la colombiana, barranquillera, Isabella Gómez Girón. . . es una actriz joven con un magnetismo que traspasa la pantalla porque su arte, su pasión por el drama, está presente en todo su ser con gran profesionalismo. La veremos en el firmamento como una estrella rutilante que con su fuego se resiste a la banalidad de nuestros días para hacer arte, que subirá desde Latinoamérica, justo en esta nueva edad de la cultura.” - LA REVISTA ACTUAL (Lucero Martínez - Directora Academia de Teatro Musical Pierrot - Columnista El Heraldo, El Tiempo).
“The darkly red Luxuria, played by Isabella Gómez; the white-clad and deceivingly innocent Avaritia, played by Stephanie Cha; and Ira, played by Chloe Citron, who is always surrounded in shadows, are three well developed characters that truly surpassed my expectations. These three witches deserve their own play wreaking havoc on mere mortals. This production is a solid exploration of Shakespeare’s original during the time of the pandemic.” (Juan Recondo – Adjunct Professor at the City University of New York and New York University. His main fields of research are Latinx and Latin American Theatre and Performance, Black Cinema, and Postcolonial Theory.)
This production also partnered with with the Theater department of Norte Vista High School, CAL. Through weekly workshops dictated by the cast, the artists aim to uplift students dealing with the adaptation to virtual learning.
