De Vloot

Promotional photography for theatre group De Vloot (the Fleet), for their Hamlet-based performance De Ur-Hamlet. Set on a ship off the coast of West-Africa, a stranded crew performs a piece that proves to be the origin of the Hamlet as we know it.

A page from the play Hamlet (featuring the well-known ‘To be or not to be‘ soliloquy) was used to fold a small paper boat. This paper boat was then placed on The Times’ Atlas of the World and photographed at a close-up.
