Belgium – Gli Amici di Luca and Hamlet for the Day of Awakenings

"Hamlet Experience. The slings of outrageous fortune" - the new show by the 'Amici di Luca' Association in Bologna, is on stage in Brussels on December 17th

The Teatro dei risvegli (Theatre of awakenings) is a project dedicated to people with coma outcomes. It is carried out through theatre laboratories by the “Amici di Luca” association in Bologna since 2003.

On the occasion of the 20th Italian National Day of Awakenings for research on coma, under the High Patronage of the Italian Republic President, and of the 4th European Day of Awakenings, under the High Patronage of the European Parliament, the show Hamlet. The slings of outrageous fortune, realized by the association Gli Amici di Luca in collaboration with TeatroAperto/Teatro Dehon of Bologna, is on stage in Brussels on December 17th.

Theatre is a now consolidated practice in the processes of re-socialization of people suffering from coma experiences. The applied method helps the patients to recover not only their physical and mental function but also the capacity to relate to themselves and to others.

The text of Hamlet has been adapted for the show in order to make it shorter and nearer to the habits of a group used to express by mean of playing, in not much verbal and very free situations.

Hamlet. Experience is staged by the Group ‘Dopo…di Nuovo, gli amici di Luca’, one of the two permanent theatre laboratories of the Casa dei Risvegli Luca De Nigris, public structure of the Azienda Usl -Local Health Autority of Bologna.

The performance is supported by Emilia-Romagna Region and Municipality of Bologna and it is set in Brussels thanks to the precious co-operation by the Italian Cultural Institute.
