Six Hamlets. Six Computers. And You!
Thou Art Here Theatre presents the world premiere of Hamlet in Isolation playing online
May 21 to June 25, 2021.
“To be or not to be….You know the rest”
Six Hamlets on six computers for six weeks. Hamlet in Isolation is a theatre mini series exploring isolation in the one of the most isolating times in history: the Covid-19 pandemic. Six actor/director partnerships devised an original performance inspired from the most iconic monologues from Shakespeare’s greatest character. Join online each week for this digital theatrical experiment of Shakespeare during the time of plague in the 21st century. Created from the original text, adapted by three directors and performed by six Albertan artists, each playing the role of Hamlet for the first time. The rest is silence.
