HAMLET - Globe to Globe - by Shakespeare's Globe Theatre
Sixteen extraordinary men and women are currently travelling across the seven continents, performing in a huge range of unique and atmospheric venues and will stop off at the UNESCO Headquarters in Paris for one performance on March 28.
Hamlet Globe to Globe opened at the world renowned Shakespeare’s Globe in London on 23 April 2014, the 450th anniversary of Shakespeare’s birth.
Learning of the king his father’s death, Hamlet comes home to find his uncle married to his mother and installed on the Danish throne. At night, the ghost of the old king demands that Hamlet avenge his ‘foul and most unnatural murder’.
Encompassing political intrigue and sexual obsession, philosophical reflection and violent action, tragic depth and wild humour, Hamlet is Shakespeare’s ‘poem unlimited’, a colossus in the story of the English language and the fullest expression of Shakespeare’s genius.
The production is a young, fresh version of Shakespeare’s classic tragedy. Just twelve actors perform over two dozen parts on a stripped-down wooden stage in a comparatively brisk two hours and forty minutes.
The show is for audiences from diaspora and displaced communities from Mali, Burkina Faso and Niger as the company were unable to travel to these countries for security reasons. A limited amount of tickets is available for the public too. Click here to register : https://www.eventbrite.com/e/hamlet-at-the-unesco-headquarters-paris-tic...

The play will be performed in English.
