CalArts Center for New Performance is excited to partner with Hauser & Wirth for a special one-night-only presentation of HA-M-LET
from multi-disciplinary artist Peter Mark in downtown LA's Arts District.
is a multi-lingual, multimedia performance housed within a projection cube. Sourcing material from Shakespeare’s play, pop internet culture, home videos, and 3D animation, the projected image becomes landscape, body, narrative, and biography — shifting at a rate which pays homage to Hamlet’s own velocity of thought. The artist has cast and filmed his Brazilian parents in the roles of King, Queen, and Ghost, rendering the conflict as both textual and real — simultaneously liberated and confined by the layers of media. HA-M-LET
is performed in Portugese and English.
