Please, Continue (Hamlet)
In this unique theatre experience, members of the audience will participate directly in the performance, blurring the boundaries between fiction and reality. Please, Continue (Hamlet) is structured like a criminal court trial, with the jury randomly made up of audience members who are informed of the elements of the case at hand. A forensic physician and a psychiatrist also take part in the trial – the physician will have studied the criminal investigation file and the psychiatrist will have conducted the evaluation of the accused. They will each present the result of their research and lend support to the prosecution and defense. In the presence of the judge, the jury (audience) will then deliberate on the guilt or innocence of the accused.
Please, Continue (Hamlet) stimulates and provokes the civic sense in each spectator as it relates to the idea of justice and touches on the gap between their personal sense of justice and the state-defined one.
