Slightly Askew Theatre Ensemble (SATE) will produce Heiner Muller's Hamletmachine from June 9-26 at 7:30PM, Wednesdays through Saturdays, at ArtDimensions Gallery: 2720 Cherokee.

The plays of Heiner Muller are as dense as they are brief - shell fragments fired into our collective psyche.  What Muller does is boil down a universally recognizable story to its skeleton.  Of his vast body of work, Hamletmachine is probably Muller's most recognizable, and possibly the least accessible. Slightly Askew Theatre Ensemble will transform Muller's dark text into a media circus that both celebrates and challenges traditional theatre forms, using the best elements of pop culture to take the mystique out of the text, and make it accessible. The spectator may recognize the farce behind the so-called despair of the intellectual: Hamlet is a clown; Ophelia is a Lady Gaga.

The performing ensemble includes Adam Elkana-Hale, Johanna Elkana-Hale, William Rauch*, Rachel Tibbetts and Kimberly C. Weller.  The production is directed by Ellie Schweyte and choreographed by Sarajane Alverson.  The stage manager is Erin Roberts.  Lighting Design by Amae Kurre.  
*Denotes member of Actors' Equity Association

Hamletmachine is presented in partnership with ArtDimensions' Flax Gallery "Large and Still In Charge" exhibition.  The Flax Gallery is a concept gallery which celebrates women in the arts.  All artwork will be by or about women and exceed 4 feet in either dimension.
