Hamlet and 887
Robert Lepage in his plays sometimes masterly reduces the stage space to the size of the room and focuses the viewers attention in the center of the stage. Partly this is due to the fact that these plays are for only one actor («Hamlet» and «887»). Also, the very idea of the play defines using limited space and its relation to the human scale. In «Hamlet» the actor is almost always inside the cube, which gives rise to the image of the heros inner experiences, a continuous dialogue with himself. In «887» the actor is mostly outside, which is a direct reference to the world of childhood — the image of a toy house and a game of soldiers.
