Now Houbrechts takes on the challenge of Hamlet. She emphasises the woman’s perspective and focuses on the destructive relationship between Hamlet and his mother, Queen Gertrude.

Lisaboa Houbrechts & Kuiperskaai create dynamic and whimsical theatre, as evidenced by the scintillating version of Shakespeare’s

The Winter’s Tale (2016) and the daring 1095 (2017). Now Houbrechts takes on the challenge of Hamlet. She emphasises the woman’s perspective and focuses on the destructive relationship between Hamlet and his mother, Queen Gertrude. She shows Gertrude’s innocence and in this way puts her at the heart of the repertoire. Lisaboa Houbrechts asked actress Grace Ellen Barkey to interpret the role of the combative Gertrude. Together with her son Victor Lauwers (Prince Hamlet) and her daughter

Romy Louise Lauwers (Ophelia), this will be their first appearance in a Kuiperskaai production. Lisaboa Houbrechts places the actual Lauwers-Barkey family on stage to interpret the Hamlet family of the dramatic canon. In this way she tries to get through to the essence of the original tragedy.
