EVENT DESCRIPTION

Hamlet_Avataar transports audience to an unknown world filled with Korean humour, moving seamlessly between incest and revenge stories often featured in Korean dramas, absurd clown entertainment and the most bizarre plots that defy imagination. Fusing Korean clown theatre, traditional Indian music and contemporary dance, this tragicomic production bears an uncanny resemblance to our reality with its innovative use of humanoid avatars characters. Following its premiere in South Korea in 2014 and Indian tour in 2015, Hamlet_Avataar stood out as a prime example of Korean contemporary theatre in 2018 when it was selected as the closing performance of the Pyeongchang Culture Olympic programme.

Part of the Hong Kong International Shakespeare Festival
