At the intersection between theatre, film, dance, visual arts and performance art, HAMLET – An Environment is an installation, an “environment” that the audience enters. Video projection shapes an architecture of shifting windows and doors wrapped around the four walls of an art gallery space. Viewers can look into interior spaces or out onto exterior landscapes on varying scales inhabited by a performer – alone or in multiple.

Shakespeare’s Hamlet is performed by one female actor, via video projection. The different characters or identities are performed by our Hamlet as different aspects of one self, or numerous selves. As a tracing of the surreal terrain of the mind, the piece is one new long soliloquy – presented as a sub-cultural oscillator within our deepest selves.
