Shakespeare’s story is located by the director in a neo-Nazi military world and begins with the coup d’etat which leads to the deportation of the Duke and the entire court. This conflict is commented upon by Jacques, the philosopher nobleman. He emphasizes the issue of tyranny, of being imprisoned and of the absolutist leadership, and on this basis love stories appear. Transferred into movement by the director Péter Uray, the play and the relationship between the characters expands their meanings. Through this type of a production, the potential, the creativity and the phisical capacities of the actors develop and disclose innovative theatre forms. Shakespeare remains, thus, our contemporary, due to his eternal stage metamorphoses.
