Concept, direction, performance: Helena Ganjalyan

MELT is an image, an impression or sensation – a monodrama based on the work with Ofelia from Shakespeare’s Hamlet. Here, Ofelia conjures her own language of her physicality, sexuality and attempting to transgress the “Yes, Father” attitude that the author restrict her being to countless times.

A woman who has to constantly recreate herself between orders and prohibitions, who is always positioned against or next to things. In the performance words are intertwined with movement, gestures and an abstract visual form.
