Duration: one hour and 40 minutes without interval

The return to the stage of Hamletmachine by Heiner Müller as seen by Robert Wilson with the young actors of the Accademia Nazionale d’Arte Drammatica Silvio d’Amico.
A meditation on Hamlet and endless other matters, from other works by Shakespeare to the Hungarian uprising of 1956 to a kind of feminist revenge against uncertain masculinity, which does not tell a story or develop characters in the traditional sense.
Müller and Wilson share a mysticism full of apolitical imagery, as far removed from commercial American theatrical conventions as it is from the pity of socialism.
