TEATRO LA PLAZA presents HAMLET
⇨ Monday 11th of July
⇨ Inclusive Theatre
⇨ 95 minutes
A contra libre version of Hamlet, written and directed by Chela De Ferrari.
A group of people with Down’s syndrome take to the stage to share their hopes and frustrations through a freeing version of Hamlet.
The play is a merging of Shakespeare’s text and the contributions and experiences of the actors, and takes its starting point at the most famous question in history, which places us in front of the mirror of our existence: To be or not to be? What does it mean to be for people who do not find spaces where they are taken into account?
Historically, people with Down’s Syndrome have been considered a burden, a social waste. What value and meaning does their existence have today in a world where efficiency, production capacity and unattainable models of consumption and beauty are the paradigm of human beings?
Teatro La Plaza is a space for theatrical creation that investigates and interprets reality to build a critical point of view that communicates with its community.
The theatre opened its doors in 2003 with the purpose of connecting with its community by offering a production of works capable of questioning, provoking and surprising. Through texts of new dramaturgy, as well as classics under a contemporary perspective, its offerings seek to formulate key questions that allow us to better understand our reality, the hectic times we live in and the complex nature of human beings.
With the intention of collaborating in the development of local dramaturgy, in 2013 the theatre created Sala de Parto, a program that promotes and encourages Peruvian works and authors.
