THT Theatre : Hamlet by The Handlebards (United Kingdom)

949, 3rd Floor, 12th Main, Off 100 Feet Road, Indiranagar
07:00 pm - 11:30 pm   

------------------------ "4 men, 4 bikes and some pretty epic Shakespearean adventures." Though this be but madness, yet there is method in't. Since 2013, the HandleBards have clocked-up over 5000 miles by cycling around the world to perform Shakespeare. Described by none other than Sir Ian McKellen as 'uproariously funny', we set the world on wheels with our unique brand of extremely energetic, charmingly chaotic, environmentally friendly cycle-powered theatre. We love an adventure. We're currently touring Hamlet and A Midsummer Night's Dream around India, Singapore and Malaysia (dates below!). We're also preparing our 2016 UK summer cycling tour, when, for the first time ever, we'll have not one, but two troupes on the road. We do Shakespeare a bit differently - cycling from venue to venue and using our bikes to power various surprises and contraptions on-stage, we play all the parts in Directors James Farrell (RSC, West End, Chichester Festival Theatre) and Emma Sampson's (of Riff Raff fame) hilarious 1930s-styled shows.
