Hamlet I Projecte Ingenu, 5 years and 3 Shakespeares
By William Shakespeare Adapted and directed by Marc Chornet Artells and Raimon Molins
Projecte Ingenu has grown and, in Shakespeare, has found a teacher who has helped to shape the company’s artistic identity. Now that Projecte Ingenu is celebrating its fifth anniversary, we want to offer the public the chance to see these three plays again in the most Shakespearean theatre in Barcelona: Teatre Akadèmia.
HAMLET. It was seduction, discovering ourselves, our language and all the possibilities that lay before us.
ROMEU I JULIETA. The passion of feeling all our strength, insouciance and carnality.
VAIG SER PRÒSPER. It was the painful but necessary farewell, the rupture. The abandonment of words and the leap into the abyss.
Hamlet is part of not just literary, but also social and universal history. Hamlet has become legendary in western society; its numerous facets shed light on the mysteries of the human personality. Morality and tradition are brought into question by injustice and the plotting of those in power. A furiously current play.
Revisiting William Shakespeare’s work allows us to tackle the great issues faced by humankind throughout history and today: love, betrayal, society versus private life, art, politics, jealousy, envy, family, the monarchy, gender roles, education, war, life after death, faith, etc.
Hamlet is all of us during adolescence, adulthood, old age and on our deathbeds. The great issue of life and death continues to “be” through every life stage: To be, or not to be, that is the question.
