Corona put the performing arts on hold. Venues closed and switched to live streaming, cancelling the immediate connection between performer and audience. CREW elevates the online theatre experience to a new level. The futuristic production Hamlet’s Lunacy by Eric Joris and Mesut Arslan was transformed by Joris and his team into Hamlet’s Playground, a corona-proof interactive theatrical experience happening simultaneously live and online. Live actors guide the audience in a console game-like environment through various rooms, where historical documents and technology provide new insight in Hamlet’s conflict.
Back in the days of Hamlet the seven celestial spheres and their planets still revolved around the earth and the murder on the king –the Minister of God- made nature revolt.
By combining historical sources and technology in a futuristic theatre production, Eric Joris (CREW) and Mesut Arslan (0090) give new insights into Hamlet's conflict.
For three years, Urland researched the internet under the wings of the Theater Rotterdam Production House. The most important development of this modern era took shape in three successive performances. EXPLORER / Prometheus unleashed, the second part of this Trilogy, is a joint creation of Urland and CREW and is central to this performance.
