The Story

Who is Hamlet? Is he one of the following things:
a) an intellectual who speculates about being or not-being?
b) a pathological procrastinator who is just unable to do a single thing?
c) a melancholic in an unstable mental state?
d) an actor cleverly manipulating everybody?
e) a moraliser who begrudges his mother’s happy love-life?
f) the rebellious student who despises the corrupt court society?
g) the noble Dane?
h) the unhappy lover?
i) the avenger?
j) Shakespeare’s dearest son?
k) the most loved tragic hero on German stages?

It is impossible to put in a few words what Hamlet is about. But it is exciting to read this character closely and observe him from different perspectives. This is why we are presenting a little Hamletfestival, performing short pieces about our hero – slightly abridged.
