To be, or not to be: that is the question:
Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
Or to take arms against a sea of troubles...
Not without reason are these some of Shakespeare's most famous lines. They do, after all, reflect a universal uncertainty about matters of life and death. To mark the inauguration of the new Thalia Theater, and as a welcome from the new ensemble and management, "everyone" is given an opportunity, within a three-minute timeframe, to pose this existential question in their own personal way. The theatre as a mirror of the human condition, the city, its inhabitants, their imaginations, doubts and questions... All the world is a stage!
Performance, 3 September 2009, at the Thalia Theater Hamburg
