Throne of Blood

Hi there. I´have been a fan of Kurosawa*s since college and one of my favorite things about him is his interest in Shakespeare. I am really interested to see how Kurosawa, Shakespeares plays and Japanese culture intersect.

I am writing a paper on actions and performance and how it is culturally respective. Are there any students of Japanese culture or Japanese people who could shed some light on Lady Macbeth in Throne of Blood? Specifically, how is she and her performance seen in Japan? Is she considered unnatural? Ghostly? Voracious? How can her actions be interpreted?

thanks!
