Hamlet_Avataar


Korean clown theatre meets Indian music and contemporary dance in a stage spectacle bursting with bizarre stories

 

Hamlet_Avataar transports audience to an unknown world filled with Korean humour, moving seamlessly between incest and

revenge stories often featured in Korean dramas, absurd clown entertainment and the most bizarre plots that defy imagination.

Fusing Korean clown theatre, traditional Indian music and contemporary dance, this tragicomic production bears an uncanny

resemblance to our reality with its innovative use of humanoid avatars characters. Following its premiere in South Korea in 2014 and Indian tour in 2015, Hamlet_Avataar stood out as a prime example of Korean contemporary theatre in 2018 when it was selected as the closing performance of the Pyeongchang Culture Olympic programme.


“A spectacle that had its audience spellbound, with brilliant use of screens and semi-reflective sheet, Hamlet Avataar's characters had both lively charisma and puppet-like gestures to unravel the myriad complexities. —The Hindu
