In Hamlet’s time, when the seven heavenly atmospheres and their planets still circle the earth, the murder of the king – God’s Minister – causes nature to revolt. Only a few years later in King Lear, Shakespeare laughs off the influence of stars and planets as “excellent foppery of the world”. In 1641, 35 years later, the king – once God’s representative on earth – is sentenced to the guillotine.

How to act honourably in a conflicting world?

Hamlet seeks revenge, but above all he wants insight.
What used to be honourable, what becomes honourable later?
What was honour revenge back then, and what does it mean today?
What was Hamlet’s question?
Which answers have arisen since?
Which answers should we call into question again?
Does anyone in Dubai still believe in ghosts?
What does someone in Jaipur think of honour revenge?

In this immersive lecture-performance, the spectator experiences and evaluates the world today through the sensibilities of Hamlet. The goal remains: insight.
