About the Show/Event
Information for Re-Member Me at Almeida Theatre, West End (One person show). When award-winning performer and lip synch maestro Dickie Beau realised he might never play The Dane, he decided instead to turn himself into a human Hamlet mix-tape. He would channel audio recordings of great historical performances of theatre's most famous role, to "re-member" the ghosts of Hamlet from the past. Haunting the set of Robert Icke's 'Hamlet', this solo satellite show is the story of Dickie's failed quest to become the Uber-Hamlet ... and why he got distracted on the way. Part documentary theatre, part twenty first century s?ance, 'Re-Member Me' is a personal adventure in cultural archaeology and a very contemporary ghost story. It is an ode to the impermanence of personhood, procrastination, and the presence of absence on the haunted stage.
