Dance Theater by Yamila Khodr
in collaboration with the 12H Dance Company
based on the tragedy of the same name by William Shakespeare
“The rest is silence” are Hamlet’s last words. However, the fact that there is a lot behind this silence – anger, desperation, major conflicts that are still open and countless unspeakable words – should be felt by the viewers of this production. The dance version of hamlet focuses on the unresolved conflicts and emotions that words can only approximately describe and reveals a particularly intense side of the Shakespearean classic: Hamlet’s grief and thirst for revenge, Ophelia’s madness and Claudius’ lust for power are touching through the dynamic, intoxicating movements even more insistent.
This hamlet dance evening shows the unspeakable, the force behind the silence.
