Seven actors stage Hamlet on the eve of the apocalypse. As the line between fiction and reality blurs; the actors, their characters and their worlds collide and are distilled into the simplest of human states. HAMLET APOCALYPSE showcases the power of death and the value of life.
“The Danger Ensemble is known for its boldness, for its willingness to go beyond the ordinary and into making theatre that, for so many reasons, really matters”. – Theatre Buzz AU
After a decade of contemporary theatre making in Brisbane, The Danger Ensemble have relocated to Melbourne and introduce themselves with their award winning production, THE HAMLET APOCALYPSE.
THE HAMLET APOCALYPSE is a dystopia of the now generation, a silent party, a desperate plea, a rambunctious prayer.
“This is one of those rare plays that both devastates and uplifts, and reminds us there’s something in live theatre that can’t be recreated elsewhere.”
“The Hamlet Apocalypse is unashamedly, wildly theatrical. It’s first-rate, challenging theatre at full-tilt. Experience it.”
