Hamlet, i.e. Ophelia

Duration: 45 min

This production constitutes an alternative biography of Ophelia and asks questions about the position of women in Poland. Running away, however, from journalistic elements, the whole is based on a theatrical essay, in which we quote from fragments of William Shakespeare’s “Hamlet”, developing and modifying them, in theatrical material. The company of male and female actors is a research group, aliens from another planet, who are attempting to understand who Ophelia was and why her literary biography occurred in such, and not another, way.
