Where is Hamlet? In what age and place does this shakesperian character live in? How do the words of the Prince of Denmark reach a world where everything is being recorded and everyone is being watched and nothing goes unnoticed? A place where privacy is no longer attainable.
Are we real or are we mirror images walking in an unstable and variable surface? What is meant to be solid is shaky, roots are impossible, and there is no substance to sustain them.
Above all, there is a need for power. A power that is manipulative, corrupt, vengeful, and may lead to murder. There is a dirty ambition that moves the characters to confrontation and destruction.Something smells rotten when someone is thrown to get power at all costs
To be or not to be. To exist or not to exist. Always the same refrain. And always the same doubt, the impossibility of taking decisions. The fear of falling into a void or in the tumult of eternity. If one does not act, others will do it…
The cosmos of humanity shown through a microcosm. The relationships, the awarenesses, the fears, aspirations… So small and condensed down to a walnut. A universe. As the characters of our Hamlet. Unable to escape from a space, a world where they continue “to be or not to be”
