A scene from Koršunovas's 'Hamlet'

This event has finished

MITSP, the first Mostra Internacional de Teatro de São Paulo (São Paulo International Theatre Festival), which aims to give exposure to plays and artists that are less well known in Brazil, brings a wide array of works from the contemporary international theatre scene – including this reworking of a classic theatre staple.

A troupe led by the Lithuanian director Oskaras Koršunovas, who hails from a country with a strong dramatic arts tradition largely unknown to Brazilian audiences, debuts a modern version of Hamlet on the national stage (subtitled, naturally) as part of MITSP’s lineup.

In this version, the Prince of Denmark’s story takes place in a dressing room full of mirrors, stressing the dialogue’s notions of identity – the ‘to be, or not to be’ of Shakespeare’s famous work – and raising questions about the role of representation in theatre itself.
