História do Príncipe H


An actor rehearses the role of Horatio in História do Príncipe H [History of Prince H]. The H in the title is a reference to Hamlet, prince of Denmark, but also, and especially, to Horatio, his faithful friend, the one who is left to “speak to th’ yet unknowing world how these things came about”. Shakespeare’s play Hamlet has become the emblem of our eternal bewilderment before the great theatre of the world. Polish stage director Jacek Malinowski, the artistic director of the Białystok Puppet Theatre, appropriates it to reflect on the concept of manipulation, that cynical way of achieving objectives, exerting influence and gaining power. A solo piece that received an award at the 2019 Baltic Puppetwhirl international festival, História do Príncipe H focuses on the struggle between degenerate morals and perverted justice, agitated by a desire for vengeance.
