The present staging of Hamlet is carried out in Daugavpils theatre which consists of two companies working simultaneously in Latvian and Russian. The performance is heavily based on Hamlet's inner struggle with his attempts and motivations, doubts, and confusion about the contemporary world. This focus challenges the subjectivity of all other characters in relation to Hamlet, as they almost have no independent existence. The staging is created by an international team, Polish, Russian and Latvian.
