Mancewicz, Aneta (2013) Panel Discussion on East European Hamlets. In: Panel Discussion on East European Hamlets, 30th January 2013, The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, University of London. (Unpublished)
This panel discussion brings together academics from the UK who are working on the appropriation of William Shakespeare's 'Hamlet' in Eastern Europe. The event engages with the question of how the staging of Shakespeare's 'Hamlet' develops a socio-political potential in different cultural contexts in Eastern Europe. Bearing in mind Jan Kott's conception of Hamlet as an inherently political play expounded in his prominent essay collection 'Shakespeare our contemporary' (1965), the panel discussion considers dramaturgical strategies of staging 'Hamlet' in Eastern Europe after 1989.
With a closer look at Bulgarian, Polish, Romanian, Lithuanian, Hungarian and Yugoslav 'Hamlets' the panel discussion offers a unique opportunity to analyse the changing dramaturgical strategies of staging 'Hamlet' in the so-called 'new' Europe with reference to the socio-political circumstances after 1989.
