Incorporating elements of physical theatre, Commedia, and a powerful command of language, TE San Pedro Rep (TESPR) presents a bold and imaginative retelling of Shakespeare's greatest work, Hamlet.
TESPR's production of Hamlet will bring an international ensemble of artists together, lead its audience on an unyielding journey of discovery into a sensory exploration of the physical and the elemental and will dare to examine anew the universal themes that lie at the heart of Hamlet, such as Time and its existential narrative that runs like a thread through the fabric of the play.
To play the play is to hold a mirror up to nature in the most literal of senses, since Time itself is at the heart of the theatrical event. It is that shared experience, a breath, a transient moment never to be repeated that is, in a sense, the world of the play as much as it is our own existence.
