A Director Work of Andrew Chan

Play by the greatest theatre poet after Samuel Beckett, Heiner Müller

I long to be a machine, feeling no pain, muting all senses
Hamlets are there all over Hong Kong?

In history, there have been reincarnations of Shakespeare’s Hamlet
What he is now struggling with is no longer his hatred to his unfaithful mother, who murdered his father
Nor his safety
But the never-ending brutal power

He is Hamlet
In the ruin
With his mind muted
He longs to be a machine
He longs to be a woman
