Length : 3h

A 21st Century Hamlet. A physical and intense performance for modern times. Hamlet’s father, King of Denmark, is dead. One night, his ghost appears, who reveals to his son that he was killed by his uncle. Thus starts the mad story of Hamlet, a tale of revenge, treason, words and love. It is a great piece of big-scale theatre, offered to you by Les Subsistances under the glass roof. This is Shakespearean theatre with all the modern trimmings: circus, dance, music, and video. 

David Bobee

David Bobee is a dazzlingly talented young theatre director. In the space of a few years only, he has become one of the best in the artistic landscape of theatre. His natural instinct for direction, as well as his habit of using actors of various styles and backgrounds, means he is a fully fledged member of a profoundly aesthetic theatre, which is vibrant, alive, and on the edge.
