Hamlet, mise-en-scène/performance; by Städelschule’s Pure Fiction seminar imagining being trained in Reptilian Acting Technique. Developed by Mark von Schlegell. As the “live” component and finale to the EXTRA TROUBLE—Jack Smith in Frankfurt festival, Portikus presents a nonexistent version of Hamlet. Channeling the ghost of American filmmaker and artist Jack Smith, Shakespeare’s most abused tragedy will be adapted, retold and performed by the Städelschule’s Pure Fiction seminar.
Directed by esteemed writer, Guest Professor Mark von Schlegell, with support by renowned artist Professor Michael Krebber, this rendition of Hamlet pays homage to Jack Smith by declining to represent him in coherent institutional fashion.
