HAMLET HALLUCINATIONS: THE SCHIZOPHRENIC HAMLET OF DARIO D’AMBROSI

A FOOL OR NOT A FOOL? 

The Italian master of the pathological theater returns to La MaMa with HAMLET HALLUCINATIONS, contemporary psycho-transcription of the Shakespearean tragedy.  Written and directed by Dario D’Ambrosi, HAMLET HALLUCINATIONS is a strong and personal interpretation of Hamlet.

#Schizophrenia #Doubt #Dichotomy #Death #Oedipus #Innocence #Skulls #Soap #Normality #Homosexuality #Violence #Dirt #Loneliness #Provocation #Fellatio #Kindness #Shit #Rape - These are just some of the “tag words” that define Hamlet as seen through the eyes of the Pathological Theater.

In D’Ambrosi retelling, Hamlet is a young schizophrenic, victim and at the same time enforcer of his own bourgeois “Culture of Doubt”. “To Be, Or Not To Be…?” turns from a quote into a pathological condition, synthesized in a two-act show where the original text of the bard is juxtaposed to D’Ambrosi’s raving language.
