Shakespeare’s Hamlet meets Korean Shamanism!

HamletPresented by Adelaide Festival Centre’s OzAsia Festival & CentreStage Program in association with Yohangza Theatre Company, one of Shakespeare’s best known tragedies of revenge and intrigue is given a Korean twist.

From the internationally acclaimed company that presented the fresh Korean interpretation of A Midsummer Night’s Dream at the Adelaide Festival Centre in 2007, Yohangza Theatre Company is known for ingeniously weaving Shakespeare with Korean folklore.

Yohangza faithfully recreates the tragedy and drama of Shakespeare’s original Hamlet in contemporary Korean language. The staging, costumes and music integrates Korean tradition and shamanism.

Hamlet’s halting pursuit of revenge for his father’s death unfolding in a series of highly charged confrontations is presented by eighteen actors of the company with a Korean interpretation of Shakespeare’s script and accompanied by modernised traditional shaman music.

This is Hamlet like you have never seen it before!
