2007 | HAMLET

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

 

Two actors created a creation of a children’s show. How to tell stories to children? More precisely, how can one tell a story from classic literature to children? On the table, a wallet, from which object jump out and quickly become characters of a story. Hamlet is an apple, Gertrudes is a dental floss, Claudius is a moisturising cream and Ophelia is a cecrisina. After an hour, Hamlet is reborn from a wallet, a bit like a Mary Poppins suitcase, smaller than the dreams it contains.

This performance suggests a challenge to discover and represent 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.

It all ends with a trip to the stage that is equipped with music, lights and costumes with the help of which, together, a story is recovered. Each day, each group creates its own take on this Shakespeare’s play.
