HAMLET FANSURI to Play at Port Commune
Hamlet Fansuri will play at Port Commune Aug. 23-25.
Hamlet Fansuri is a new translation and re-adaptation of William Shakespeare's The Tragedy of Hamlet, Prince of Denmark in Malay by Ridhwan Saidi, with the poetry of Hamzah Fansuri, a 16th century Sumatran Sufi poet, as its interscene mechanism.
Hamlet Fansuri begins with a Malay translation and re-fragmentation of Heiner Müller's Hamletmachine and Comte de Lautréamont's Maldoror in a piece called OPHELIA MALDOROR as its 'buka panggung'.
This play also features an experiential soundscape curated and performed by Kicau Bilau.
Anticipate a dark nusantara, ambient site-specific recital.
