In the spring of 2017, ROLL THE BONES—a New York-based immersive theater company—took over a five-hundred-year-old castle in Ireland. A threefold creative endeavor emerged: a live immersive performance, a 360° virtual reality experience, and this film. Modern in spirit while faithful to Shakespeare’s text, eight actors living in close quarters immersed in the world of Hamlet for three weeks straight. It is the mission of this company and the Hamlet project to expand the dimensions of Shakespeare’s story, to inspire our audience to hazard the unfamiliar, and to make choices that captivate them. Hamlet, this endless source of fascination, thrives as one of humanity’s purest plunges into the search for meaning—its reach is all-encompassing.
