See ‘Silent Shakespeare’ at the Capri

Hamlet 2How does Shakespearean tragedy fare without a word being spoken? And how does Hamlet fare played by a woman?

You can find out at Hamlet: Drama of Vengeance, the gala screening of a famous 1920 silent film version of Hamlet, starring Asta Nielsen, and filmed in Germany.

The Flinders University School of Humanities and Creative Arts and Flinders Institute for Research in the Humanities, in collaboration with the ARC Centre of Excellence for the History of Emotions (Europe 1100-1800), presents the free event of film, music and discussion to celebrate the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death.

Introduced by Judith Buchanan, Professor of Film and Literature at the University of York, UK, the film will be accompanied by an improvised live score by Ashley Hribar (piano), Julian Ferraretto (violin) and Rachel Johnston (cello).

The event will be held at the Capri Theatre in Goodwood at 7pm on Monday, March 21.
