Hamlet by William Shakespeare (original version)

In the organizer's words:

Hamlet as a failed hero of the young generation. Open air

The tragedy of a hopeful young man who has a task placed on his shoulders that weighs too heavily for him, which he fails at and ultimately perishes, symbolizes a successor generation, its values and ideals and the decision to rebel against the abuse of power, manipulation and corruption in politics and restore justice. The production approaches the European classic with the formal means of traditional theater. The archetypal characteristics and ambivalences of the characters are emphasized through concentrated physicality and symbolic costumes. A simple, poetic visual language allows us to concentrate on Shakespeare's study of man and his linguistic masterpiece.
