    1. I have a limited tolerance of postmodernism for postmodernism's sake. At least make the stage directions intelligible, otherwise you're just a wanker.


    2. I loved the general chaotic feel of this, and as the purpose of the text seems to be throwing people off and leaving them confused and baffled it seems to have reached its goal. I like it, mainly for the sheer absurdity of it.






    3. Hamletmachin is a postmodern, absurdist play, the text of which is only 6 pages long but the original German staging was 7 hours! It is obscure, bizarre, and unsettling, with no conventional plot and references to events and objects all throughout history/time (TVs, for instance). The version I saw in Chicago featured three different Hamlets, two Ophelias, and one Gertrude. At one point Ophelia #3 turned into a man and Hamlet #3 turned into a woman. Hamlet #1 spent a lot of time rolling around o [...]


    4. At first this play was too chaotic for me to understand. What I appreciated after reading it was the counteract of Hamlet and Ophelia and their change in character. After discussing it in class, however, another star was added. The historical context in which this play was written, namely 1980s East-Germany, explains the chaos. Furthermore Ophelia's change in character, her final speech in connection with feminism, and being simply done with oppression, makes it so much more interesting to explo [...]


    5. Some really weird postmodern reads make sense after a while this one did not. I don't know if I find it pretentious or if I just missed its brilliance, all I know is that this should not be aloud on stage, like ever. EDIT: Okay, so after learning more about the play, I've come to appreciate a little more. I'm still very unsure as to whether it should ever be performed.


    6. It's all over the place. I'm really really curious about what this would look like on stage, because reading it is confusing. There's a lot going on it seems and I don't think reading does the play justice.


    7. very dense, very uncanny, very confusing but only as confusing as hamlet's mindset is in the play, which is the point. but only nine pages in total (i have not been the family fang'd or if on a winter's night a traveler'd it is literally only nine pages)


    8. A very fast read of a play. Free online to read. Seemed more like a name dropper and a lot of wild thoughts on them.


    9. I love Hamlet. I love Hamlet a lot. So, I saw a play called "Hamletmachine" at my library, and I figured, "What the hell?" and I decided to read it.I've never been so surprised in my life.What happens in "Hamletmachine"? Good question. I'm still trying to figure that out. The play is short (a little longer than "Jet of Blood" by Artaud), but it feels very complete and well-designed, like a lot of care was put into its very short run-time. Muller constantly breaks the fourth-wall with 1980's pop- [...]


    10. It may just be that I had to read it completely exhausted and kind of quickly, but what is this? I understand that it is supposed to tackle topics like feminism and the non-possibility of dialogues for today, but all I'm reading is incoherent babbling and forced weirdness, at least for my taste. It's like when I am reading a reaptation, or whatever you wanna call it, I kind of hope for a little bit of ground basis from the piece of art it is based on. For the first two scenes, I was still a bit [...]


    11. > Ich bin Ophelia. Die der Fluß nicht behalten hat. Die Frau am Strick Die Frau mit den aufgeschnittenen Pulsadern Die Frau mit der Überdosis AUF DEN LIPPEN SCHNEE Die Frau mit dem Kopf im Gasherd. Gestern habe ich aufgehört mich zu töten.> Was du getötet hast sollst du auch lieben. > Ich schüttle, von Brechreiz gewürgt, meine Faust in der andrängenden Menge gegen mich, der hinter dem Panzerglas steht. Ich sehe, geschüttelt von Furcht und Verachtung, in der andrängenden Menge [...]


    12. I wrote an essay about this once i had no idea what I was talking about. It probably deserves more stars, but I wasn't intelligent enough to understand.


    13. just had a good chat about authority vs. insanitymeaning such experimentation done by say Heiner vs. Virginia, gets received at varying places on the authority/insanity trajectory. Anyway.



    14. Such a weird, play with really creepy imagery, especially with regards to Ophelia. I loved it, and I'd love to see it produced live.



    15. Какого хрена он здесь делает. В этом нет никакого смысла. Просто да мне пофиг.



    16. I'll have to come back to this at a later date. I'm caught between finding it interesting and finding it pretentious.
