Hamlet

23 September 2022

Synopsis

This is a performance about the perception of modern reality, therefore about borders. The piece is about the possibility of looking at this reality from two poles of this perception: 1. the world is virtual, 2. the world is real. The play “Hamlet” is a confrontation of these two opponents and the process of interaction between them. There are four actors. Two men. Two women. Hamlet and Ophelia understand the world as virtual. Hamlet’s mother and Hamlet’s stepfather understand the world as real. After the collision of these two forms of perception representatives of the virtual understanding of the world die ¬physically (Hamlet, Ophelia), and representatives of the real understanding (Hamlet’s mother and stepfather) remain alive. They outlive their own children. This was the starting point for the show that has since evolved…it is a process. Alexej Schipenko
