Be the main character in your own life
Shakespeare Interactive is a performance concept that highlights everyday teenage dilemmas with audience involvement and the use of new technology. This is an artistic laboratory, which since 2010 has been creating entertaining one-man shows, rooted dramatically in the juvenile lead character of Hamlet. Meet the teenager himself, Prince H. and other characters from William Shakespeare’s immortal classic, as they challenge their peers to play the leading role in their own lives, while respecting the community.
To be and how? That is the question. This paraphrase of Shakespeare’s famous words forms the basis for this modern identity-/culture-based project.
The audience become ‘everyday experts’, when the characters ask them for advice in these discussion-based talk shows. Fictional and factual language meet, paving the way for discussion and thought in the audience. New, shared understanding emerges from the discussions between the audiences and the talk show hosts.
