Jordi Oriol’s loutish and irreverent version of the doubts of the tormented Prince of Denmark created by Shakespeare
Jordi Oriol has been playing with Hamlet, William Shakespeare’s tormented prince, for a decade. A game that began in Temporada Alta with Xavier Albertí, then turned into a recital with musicians and now continues as a live monologue via Zoom, for a limited audience only. A highly irreverent version – maintaining the poetic effect of the words – as is usual in this actor’s work in a creative universe that is both loutish and ground-breaking. A piece that questions the triteness of doubt to challenge the reverence towards his famous soliloquies and above all the notion itself of the classic.
