Premiere: Sun 18.09.2022, 19h.
Commissioned work for Theater für Niedersachsen, Hildesheim, Germany
Choreography by Yamila Khodr, in collaboration with the 12H Dance Collective
based on the tragedy of the same name by William Shakespeare
“The rest is silence” are Hamlet’s last words. However, the audience of every Hamlet production is likely to sense that there is a lot behind this silence – rage, despair, great, still unresolved conflicts and countless, unspeakable words. The dance version of the Hamlet trilogy host in this Theatre also concentrates on the unspoken conflicts and emotions that words can only begin to describe and reveals a particularly intense side of Shakespeare’s classic: Hamlet’s grief and thirst for revenge, Ophelia’s madness and Claudius’s lust for power are all made even more haunting by the dynamic, intoxicating movements.
The choreographer Yamila Khodr devotes herself to these different facets of the characters in collaboration with the artists’ collective 12H Dance, with whom she realised the multimedia documentary performance Grenz.land, among others. Born in Argentina, she has already worked as a dancer and choreographer at the Saarland State Theatre and internationally in and with numerous companies. She sees contemporary dance as an art form through which it is possible to confront interpersonal differences and diversities, to appreciate them and to search for connections. In this hamlet dance evening, she shows the unspeakable, the force behind silence.
