Hamlet is knee-deep in a personal and political quagmire. His father, the king, has been murdered by his uncle Claudius, who has hastily married his sister-in-law to assume the throne. Seeking to avenge his father’s murder, Hamlet sets off a chain of events resulting in death, destruction and a notable absence of justice.

But the politics and scandal in Shakespeare’s classic tragedy are nothing compared to the political discord and global uncertainty of today. This student-driven, devised theater piece, adapted from the Bard’s tale, imagines a new cast of greedy, divisive leaders—and a new generation to challenge them and liberate themselves.

Silencio Blanco presents Pescador at Clarice Smith, Feb 16-17

Silencio Blanco presents Pescador at Clarice Smith, Feb 16-17

Silencio Blanco
Pescador

February 16 & 17, 2019
Sat, Feb 16, 2019 . 8:00PM
Sun, Feb 17, 2019 . 3:00PM

Venue: Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center. Kogod Theatre.

Silencio Blanco’s silent, colorless puppets are charged with capturing humanity and giving voice to the voiceless. Returning to The Clarice after a moving creation residency and sold-out performances in 2017, this deeply empathetic company presents Pescador, an intimate experience that is dedicated to the lives of Chilean fishermen who face nature’s overwhelming magnificence while navigating a lonely existence to support those they love. In this most transparent of installations, the tender manipulation of the austere puppets crafts a narrative that allows us to view the beauty and struggle of a fisherman’s labor.

Tickets: General admission $35, Students/Youth $10. Click here.
