Something is rotten in the state of …? 

 (Hamlet, I.V.100)

Hamlet, Prince of Denmark, returns home to find his father mysteriously murdered and his mother marrying his father’s murderer, his uncle Claudius. Meanwhile, war is next door… 

This puzzling play by William Shakespeare highly resonates with current political events. This interpretation through mimodrama of Shakespeare’s most famous “revenge tragedy” depicts a world turned upside down. Hamlet, in this maelstrom of intrigue, treachery, madness and revenge, talks about the absence of love and speaks the language of the heart, touching the cord of sense and feeling, yet you won’t see Ophelia in the play.   

But will the world survive?
