This is a performance about the perception of modern reality, therefore about borders. The play is about the possibility of looking at that reality from two poles of that perception: 1. the world is virtual, 2. the world is real. The play 'Hamlet' is a confrontation of these two opponents and the process of interaction between them. There are four actors. Two men. Two women. Hamlet and Ophelia understand the world as virtual. Hamlet's mother and Hamlet's stepfather understand the world as real. After the collision of these two forms of perception representatives of the virtual understanding of the world physically die (Hamlet, Ophelia), and representatives of the real understanding (Hamlet's mother and stepfather) remain alive. They survive their own children.
