The great Shakespearean anti-hero comes to the Lliure to once again put his undeniable and contemporary human profoundness to the test. Without Shakespeare we are nothing. Without Hamlet, we are nobody. Directed by Pau Carrió.

Butaca Price 2016 to the Actor (Pol López)

What is happening to us? Why do we bear the whips and scorns of time, the oppressor's wrong, the proud man's contumely, the pangs of despised love, the law's delay, the insolence of office and the spurns that patient merit of the unworthy takes? Will more foul deeds arise? Though all the earth o'erwhelm them, to men's eyes? Do we need more proof evidence? Is it conscience that makes cowards of us all and the native hue of resolution become sicklied o'er with a pale cost of thought, and enterprises of great pith and moment with this regard their currents turn awry, and lose the name of action? Does fear hold us back? Are we princes in Elsinore? Are we, or are we not?
We are - perhaps talking about of my generation - aware that something is rotten in the kingdom, the prevailing corruption, we know that one can smile, and smile, and be a villain. Like in prison, we have no way out, and all these things makes us feel angry and puzzled at the same time. We wonder what we should do. We would like to formulate the correct answers and actions in this situation. And when we stop to consider how to do it, we repeatedly come across contradictions that we are unable to overcome. We are unable to decide upon our role, because we do not believe this revenge tragedy. We are Hamlet.
