Hamlet

Synopsis
Video recording of an experimental staging of Hamlet. There are three Hamlets in the production, sometimes taking turns, sometimes together on stage reflecting Hamlet’s schizophrenia. The arrangement allowed the audience to see different forms of Hamlet’s madness and confront different aspects of the protagonist’s personality.
