2007 | HAMLET

To dance or not to dance… It’s not a question…

 

Two actors rehearse the creation of a performance aimed for children. How should you tell stories to kids? And more precisely, how should you tell a dramaturgical and literature classic to the younger crowd? Over the table there is a purse, from which objects pop out and quickly become the characters of a story.

Hamlet is played by an apple, Gertrude takes the form of dental floss, Claudius an hidrating cream and Ofelia, a vitamins tablet. After an hour, Hamlet is reborn from out of the purse, which resembles Mary Poppins’: smaller than the dreams it keeps inside.

This performance suggests a challenge to discover and perform different theatrical “scenes” for Hamlet‘s plot. Two actors tell a Shakespeare story to the children, guiding them (and distracting them) through the narrative and inviting them to an active participation.

The play ends with a trip to the stage, where a party will take place, with lights, music, costumes. With the help of the audience, Hamlet will be retold.
Each day, a different performance is created by the young group of spectators, from this Shakespeare’s play.
