The globetrotting careers of Leonard and Chiara Ajkun inspired the scope of the twirling twosome's Ajkun Ballet Theatre, where they continue to direct classic ballets and choreograph an average of five new programs each year. Originally penned by the bard himself in the early 17th century, Hamlet speaks of revenge and madness. The timeless tragedy follows Prince Hamlet as he unleashes his fury upon his uncle Claudius for murdering his king father, succeeding the throne, and not putting his DVDs back in their cases after watching them. In the Ajkun Ballet Theatre’s reinterpretation, the contemporary choreography of Leonard Ajkun stands in for iambic pentameter, conveying both the depth of the young prince’s mental breakdown and the savagery of his rage. Set within the Kingdom of Denmark, Hamlet enfolds Ajkun Ballet Theatre company members into the artistic action with elaborate costumes and precision pirouettes.
