Tropical Arts’ Shakespeare at the Tanks 2021,
“HAMLET & the Climate Emergency”.
With two performances only starting at 7pm, Friday 22 October and Saturday 23 October at Tank 3, Tanks Arts Centre, tickets are available to purchase now via Ticketlink .
A dynamic, condensed adaptation of Hamlet is interwoven with an ominous Climate Emergency in Tropical Arts 13th Annual Shakespeare at the Tanks production. With a large, diverse cast HAMLET & the Climate Emergency fuses theatre, dance, and music with powerful digital landscapes. The classic tale transforms into a poignant, contemporary vision that speaks to dilemmas of our generation. HAMLET & the Climate Emergency, set in the modern world of corporate power, explores the tragic aftermath of betrayal.
This project is supported by the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland.
This production is presented by Tropical Arts in partnership with Tanks Arts Centre and ARC Disability Services with the support of Cairns Regional Council.
