Hamlet, or I Shall Mourn the Rivers Patrice Miller, with the company

About This Show

Drawing from the writing of Arundhati Roy, Judith Butler, and Slavoj Žižek, Hamlet, or I Shall Mourn the Rivers uses a newly edited and deconstructed text of Shakespeare’s tragedy to examine the escalation of paranoia and violence between citizens and the state. How far can boundaries be pushed in order to save ourselves from war, from terrorism, from the state, each other, from ourselves? Can we imagine no countries?
