Hamletmachine explores late 20th century Western culture, in a richly poetic and layered text. Heiner Müller's masterpiece borrows from Shakespeare, T.S. Eliot and Jean-Luc Godard, among others. (He was "sampling" before there was such a thing!) This innovative production featuring a multi-racial, multi-generational cast is under the direction of Viennese theatre director, Müller scholar, and Castillo founder, Eva Brenner. If you like your theatre teasing the imagination and pushing the envelope, don't miss this one-of-a-kind international collaboration.
The production of Hamletmachine is made possible in part by the Austrian Cultural Forum of New York City.
