On October 17, La MaMa E.T.C. will debut Hamlet Hallucinations, Italian cult director Dario D'Ambrosi's "psycho-transcription" of Shakespeare's Hamlet. D'Ambrosi, who just last year offered New York City a production of Medea interpreted by a chorus of mentally ill performers, is best known for theatrically exploring the controversial aspects of mental illness — a movement he has labeled "Teatro Patologico."

Take a look at the promo video for his newest piece, a provocative and "pathological" adaptation of the classic Shakespearean tragedy.
