"Hamlet in architectural space" Negrin David

This project is an effort to combine architecture and theatre in such way that the former one leads the latter. This possible relation is tested and experienced through the theatrical arrangement of Shakespeare’s “Hamlet” inside the construction site of the Averoff building. The architectural language of the building shell and the impression of the construction site guide the show direction. It’s an attempt of reusing and redefining a space loaded with history, where the ephemerality of the construction site allows freedom of action. Actors and spectators move through many of the building’s spaces all during the play. Architecture guides the contributors and the audience towards the emotive target of the play.
