Shakespeare Festival – Hamlet
May 22 @ 20:00 - May 23 @ 20:00 CEST
Speechless. A mentally unstable young woman identifies with her namesake, Shakespeare’s Ophelia. While reading Hamlet, she gets to the heart of her own story. What has happened to her? Shakespeare’s words take shape, the characters come to life, and Ophelia experiences the dramatic events of her own life. The imPerfect Dancers Company creates Hamlet as a drama about life and death and the dark sides of the human soul.. Photo: © Shakespeare Festival / ImPerfect Dancers Company.
The annual Shakespeare Festival has taken place in Neuss for thirty years. Local expats adore performances in English at the traditional Globe Theatre, a replica of the original along the Thames in London.
As well as the festival’s innovative approach, new artistic director Maja Delinić is developing deeper, multifaceted and cross-disciplinary encounters with William Shakespeare and his works. For four weeks, 14 different companies from various countries will perform in 35 events at the Globe Theater Neuss. New faces making their debut in Neuss as well as well-known and favourite theatre troupes unite drama, music, art, lecture and audience improvisation.
