Hamlet, de los Andes

Teatro de los Andes

Teatro de los Andes, one of Latin-America’s finest companies, combines Bolivian music and traditional theatre forms to create a powerful evening of contemporary theatre.

This raw and gripping reinterpretation of Hamlet is recreated in present-day Bolivia; the cast stripped back to three actors, the stage design minimal. The setting is exotic but the central themes of Shakespeare’s work are familiar – betrayal, corruption, revenge.

This provocative performance explores the politicised journey thousands of Bolivians are compelled to make each year; leaving their rural homes to seek out opportunity in the city.

This production fizzes with inventiveness both in its interpretation and in its staging.
