What does Shakespeare call his omelette? A Hamlet.
OMELETTEMACHINE is a highly physical bouffonesque show that will transport you in the nightmarish bloodied world of Mike, your favourite butcher!
Mike will guide you through a journey in his personal ‘Teatro della Carne’ to unpack his role in his family business: ‘Hamlet & Sons butchers – meating your expectations since 1601′.
With an egg-splattered gory and fairly disgusting attempt to meet his dead father’s expectation, Mike the Headless Chicken will try and break away from the violent cycle his family has been condemned into.
Created by Lecoq & RADA trained Tommaso Giacomin, OMELETTEMACHINE explores and unpack family trauma by butchering one of the most famous plays in the world: HAMLET.
