In memory of Martin Tulinius

In the staging of Martin Tulinius, Artistic Director of the Danish Theater Republique Shakespearean tragedy is a pure black comedy cabaret with circus, visual
transformations, giant dolls and dances. Using the accordion, double bass and percussion The Tiger Lillies musicians and their front man Martin Jacques in the role of the leading actor of the wandering troup present a tale of love, betrayal, murder and revenge, Struggling Helping Danish Melancholic Have Fun. Prince takes their efforts with the gratitude of the true connoisseur. It looks as if he, like the Pushkin's Walsingham, enjoys being "at the abyss gloomy, on the edge". Knowing that the end is predetermined, he decides to live his short age so “to not be painfully sorry”.

This is Hamlet with a vaudevillian cabaret twist, a Hamlet that is both visually and musically striking. And is quite possibly the best production of Hamlet I’ve seen to date.
