Anglistik und Amerikanistik

The EDG is finally back on stage – with no other play than Shakespeare’s "Hamlet": modern, musical and as mysterious as always.


Termine: 20., 21, und 22. Juli 2022, jeweils 20:00 Uhr, Stadtmensa

Love. Revenge. Death.

The most common themes associated with Shakespeare’s most famous tragedy.

And then there is:

Power. Intrigue. Desire. Suicide.

But what about:

Young individuals. Patchwork Family. Mental Health. Teenage rebellion. Procrastination.

We are not trying to make a point about Hamlet’s inherent modernity; others have done that before. We are merely enhancing Hamlet’s relevance in modern times by slightly shifting the focus and adding contemporary live music. The result is an intertextual, multi-layered tragedy that is perhaps a bit more accessible to a young audience today.

Experience Hamlet as you have never experienced Hamlet before! Complete with songs by Florence and the Machine, Pearl Jam, Queen, My Chemical Romance and more.

Tickets im Vorverkauf zur Mittagszeit in der Mensateria erhältlich. Studierende 4,- Andere 5,- (an der Abendkasse je 1€ mehr)
