Short documentary showing extracts from our travels in Israel while working on the Hamlet project.

A cross disciplinary project fusing theatre, dance, music, installation art and circus developed in collaboration with Acco Theatre Centre in summer 2013.Director Keziah Serreau and the lead artist, Amie Burns Walker. Video artists Ben Foot and Valentina Floris (SDNA).
Hamlet is about grief. Each character grieves for the loss of someone that has suffered a violent death. Polonius is stabbed, The King is poisoned and Ophelia drowns. This is a theme much closer to home for Israeli and Palestinians as it is a reality for many people and we want to bring the significance of this to a British Audience.
