About this show

Director John Farmanesh-Bocca's concept removes the action from a constricted time period, evoking something more modern, yet timeless (to imbue a sense of immediacy to the proceedings). This production of Hamlet features an intensely physical, movement-intensive approach. Instead of the static image of actors planting themselves and reciting flowery speeches, imagine the notion of a warrior culture with people in a time of turmoil fighting, running, jumping and living. It's an imagining that's dynamic, visceral, operatic in scope.
