CalArts Ensemble Theater 407
4.20 - 4.28, 2018
Suffocated by the death of his father and his mother’s sudden remarriage to his uncle Claudius, Prince Hamlet is faced with a choice. Feigning madness, Hamlet resolves to uncover the truth of his father's untimely demise amidst a myriad of deceit.
Revealing the rift between thought and action, director Scarlett Kim leads an ensemble of 13 amnesiac clowns as they invite the audience to perform and engage in their mad language of love.
To exist is to perform relentlessly, and to perform at all is to perform madness.
