Almost two years ago now, Stephen Pey from EPR Architects approached Edward and I with a project that he described us as a “labour of love” – a new mixed use building on London’s Savile Row clad in almost 10, hand glazed ceramic tiles, created in a spirit of true collaboration.
At other times action erupts in several rooms simultaneously — while Edward Hogg’s Hamlet, who seems a spectator of his own tragedy, sits silently ruminating on a white sofa, other characters speculate on the source of his malaise. T dreamthinkspeakk hottest ticket at the Brighton festival is this minute “meditation on Hamlet” staged by the experimental company dreamthinkspeak. Latecomers will not be admitted.
I found the venue and staging unappealing, standing for two hours uncomfortable, the actors were just not up to it — caged as they were. This time Sharps gives us an almost cinematic experience, a Hamlet that takes the original script and carves it up to give it a tough, modernity whilst still using the beauty of the original language.
