HAMLET

The Festival is proud to welcome The Wooster Group, one of the most innovative theatre companies in the world, for its first time in Dublin. Led by visionary director Elizabeth LeCompte, The Wooster Group and its associates have constantly reimagined classic and devised texts through its groundbreaking work.

The Group’s HAMLET repurposes the film version of Richard Burton’s legendary 1964 Broadway version of Hamlet —a production that was screened in cinemas across America. In a rapturous and often hypnotic production, they reverse the process, reconstructing the show from the fragmentary evidence of the edited film, and channelling the ghosts of the 1964 performance. With songs by Casey Spooner (Fischerspooner) and performances by long-time Wooster members Ari Fliakos, Scott Shepherd and Kate Valk, prepare to be enthralled as this iconic tragedy is transformed. 
 
HAMLET IS A CO-PRODUCTION OF THE WOOSTER GROUP AND THE 30 FESTIVAL OF BARCELONA GREC-INSTITUTE DE CULTURA, AJUNTAMENT OF BARCELONA.
