Fledgling Theatre Company – Appropriation

Wednesday 17 April 2019 to Saturday 27 April 2019

Hamlet is dead. What's next?

Appropriation tells the imagined story of Fortinbras, a rash hothead who learns from his politically gifted wife when to wield a sword and when to weave a story. Raw, poetic and darkly funny, the performance is a surgical assault on how they use stories to establish power.

Fledgling Theatre Company are an international theatre company that explore raw and visceral new writing through a distinctly physical approach to theatre making. They are dedicated to creating theatre that excites and challenges audiences, utilising stage combat skills coupled with dynamic movement sequences to create confronting imagery. Since their inception in 2014, FTC have produced six new works including a UK tour, a critically acclaimed Edinburgh run, as well as residencies in London and Sydney.

Appropriation is written by Paul Gilchrist, writer and director, and the artistic director of subtle nuance. His work has been produced in Sydney, interstate and overseas.
