Det Ferösche Compagnie (DFC) is developing its most ambitious production to date: the staging of the tragedy of Hamlet, premiering in autumn 2019. The title of the production is Funeral, the Tragedy of Hamlet and it will be a feast of sorrow and death and an exploration of funeral rites in the Faroe Islands.
At the end of the Shakespeare´s play, before Hamlet draws his last breath, he says to Horatio:
O God, Horatio, what a wounded name, Things standing thus unknown, shall live behind me! If thou didst ever hold me in thy heart, Absent thee from felicity a while, And in this harsh world draw thy breath in pain To tell my story.
DFC´s production therefore puts Horatio in the centre of the performance and has him tell Hamlet’s story.
