|In an instant
enlightenment flashes on us in our nutshell and it is this condensed eternity
we see everything that has been and what will be. That is the Time beyond
Pain-time of the Secret, when everything is melted into something invisible
and shivering like Death.
At this single point, with its immeasurable energy
and power, our Hamlet takes place. For once and never again. It comprises
everything- Heaven and Bliss, Love and Hatred, Reason and Passion. Before
and Behind. “To be or not to be”.The Actor is Gjorgji Jolevski, He is Hamlet,
and Hamlet is a shaman. What they both have in common is that they dare
to travel through the cosmic spaces.
“To be or not to be” is the crucial question of
every Actor who truly, shaman-like, is suffering the wounds of the “Other”.
He passes through Christ’s passions until he reaches the Revelation. And
hence the Actor enters the radiant zone of the Spirit!
We wish to research the occult and oniric nature
of the theatre discourse. Gjorgji, the Actor, Hamlet- awakens the mythic
time and transforms it into historic, acts his drama, stumbling between
heaven and earth, and in its last scene recognizes the primordial image
of Cosmos called Shakespeare.
All starts with a disillusion resembling the initial
illusion. At the cross-point of these two levels of consciousness. Gjorgji
tries to enter into the spheres of Secret. The Actor is a cosmic dimension
of the character, and Hamlet attempts to find an answer to the question:
“Do I wish to die standing”?
Does Hamlet die standing? As he passes in the
space marked by the Ghost, he re-invokes the scenes drawn from the Oblivion
and that is why his images are dim, at times soft and dreamy or sharp and
rough, a watercolour or prints. Could the live light of soul and space
be retold and painted, could death be described?
The answer of the great question of Hamlet is;
Let it be.
