Check out Hamlet Isn't Dead on March 26th: https://www.hamletisntdead.com/
Dream of Hamlet is a modern interpretation of Shakespeare’s Hamlet told through the classical stylings of Turkish shadow puppetry. In this show, the Anatolian puppet theatre Karagöz, a living tradition with 700 years of history, brings a modernist approach to the British playwright Shakespeare’s signature play by reconstructing its characters and theme in an entirely different context. The show is directed by Ayhan Hulagu, performed by Amy Liou and Jordon Waters.

Super excited to announce that we bring the Shakespeare's Hamlet to the stage in New York City. Hamlet Isn't Dead, in association with the US Karagöz Theatre, presents a modern shadow puppetry play in a classical style.

Dream of Hamlet is a modern interpretation of Shakespeare’s Hamlet told through the classical stlyings of Turkish shadow puppetry. In this show, the Anatolian puppet theatre Karagöz, a living tradition with 700 years of history, brings a modernist approach to the British playwright Shakespeare’s signature play by reconstructing its characters and theme in an entirely different context. It is directed by myself and performed by Amy Liou and Jordon Waters.

New York’ta Hamlet Isn’t Dead Tiyatrosu’nda Shakeaspeare’in Hamlet’ini sahneye taşıyoruz. Oyun baştan sona Karagöz’den yola çıkarak gölge oyunu formatında tasarlandı. David Andrew Laws artistik direktörlüğünü üstleniyor, Nicole Amaral sahne yönetiminde görev alıyor. Ayhan Hülagü yönetiyor, Amy Liou ile Jordon Waters oynuyor. Mart’ın 26 ve 27sinde online seyirciyle buluşacak.

Thanks, Ayhan, for a great performance and workshop at the Great Plains Puppet Train this weekend! Keep up the great work sharing this cultural treasure with people across the U.S. and around the world.
A picture of my Karagoz show which was sadly lost to unfortunate circumstances. I would really like to rebuild it and perform it again. Can you recommend a script and some puppet patterns? Teşekkür ederim
