The Prince Of Denmark: a Hamlet With Badut Humor At Children’s Week
The philosophy of Prince Hamlet, tragic character of the English playwright William Shakespeare, can also conquer children as a clown. The proof is the praised show “The Prince of Denmark”, from the Vagalum Tum Tum Company of São Paulo, which brings fun to people of all ages with the adaptation of this one of the best known works of the English bard, “Hamlet”, in which all characters, without exception, besides clowns, are joking skulls that there are more mysteries between heaven and earth than our vain philosophy supposes. For the first time in circulation in the country, the team arrives in Recife through the sponsorship of Petrobras Distribuidora, the Rouanet Law and the Ministry of Culture, integrating the programming of the Week of the Child of the Teatro Marco Camarotti with totally free presentations.

Free tickets distributed 1 hour prior to the venue. Challenging to introduce the tormented prince Hamlet to the kids, the director and adapter Angelo Brandini surpassed in creativity, grace, choice of languages and efficiency narrative, everything happening inside a graveyard with all the personages as dead. For children, it is a world of discoveries, without fear of taboo subjects (murders, suicides, violent revenge). For the young, there is a dark freshness and a frenetic mood.
That is, it is a spectacle for all ages shrouded in grace, picardy, comic strip language, circus-theater tricks and clownish stumblings.
