Post Mortem Movement Theater uses movement to explore Hamletmachine

I Was Hamlet
Post Mortem Movement Theater’s I Was Hamlet comes to the Hollywood Fringe Festival following its debut last December at the George Burns Soundstage at UCLA. Adapted by Kyle Johnston, Angel Correa, Emily Josephine, and Angela Lopez (who also directs), the one hour piece is a physical adaptation of Heiner Muller’s Hamletmachine. It explores issues of gender and identity, abuse of power, and the tortured nature of performance by combining the grotesque and the awe-inspiring via dance, acrobatics, and various other physical disciplines.

The company has previously received awards for their Fringe productions of Charivari in Voyeurville and Ravens and Writing Desks. Remaining performances are Friday, June 17 (8pm), Sunday, June 19 (1:30 pm) and Saturday, June 25 (5:30 pm) at Actors Company’s Other Space Theater, 916 N. Formosa Avenue, West Hollywood, CA 90046.
