Inner Circle Theatre Presents a Tech-Savvy Prince of Denmark

Hamlet - Inner Circle Theatre

Hamlet tells us, “There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so.” It’s all in the perception of a thing, especially today in the age of Snapchat and Instagram where the camera puts our lives on display (or the version we choose to share). Looking to the artistic and social troublemakers of our time, the production sees Hamlet wield the camera as both exploratory tool and brutal weapon. Urban and tech-savvy, this Prince of Denmark confronts his perceptions with Shakespeare’s text and the image-wizardry of a modern street artist.

Inner Circle Theatre and director Matthew G. Hill will fuse together Hill’s years as a film and theatre artist with his work as an illustrator to form a hybrid production that places the Bard’s great revenge play at the vanguard. Hill is an artist-in-residency at the National Theatre of Croatia, the Getty Villa, and the Annenberg Beach House and is currently the associate artistic director of the Rogue Artists Ensemble.

Love is love, regardless of who does the loving. That is my belief. If all men (and women) are created equal, what right do we have to keep two people who love each other apart? Who are we to say that a man should not love another man or a woman should not love another woman? It’s a simple truth, but at no time in history has that truth been challenged as vehemently as it is now in these modern times. And yet, love is love, regardless of who does the loving.
