Richard III + II

“For God’s sake, let us sit upon the ground and tell sad stories of the death of kings; How some have been deposed; some slain in war, Some haunted by the ghosts they have deposed; Some poison’d by their wives: some sleeping kill’d; All murder’d.”
(Richard II, Act 3, Scene 2)

Dramatic Diptych with an Epilogue on Death
Based on William Shakespeare’s plays: Richard III and Richard II, translated by: Matej Bor

Duration:

135 minutes inc. interval

Richard III + Richard II, directed by Tomaž Pandur, is based on the motifs of William Shakespeare’s historical chronicles Richard III and Richard II. Pandur dissects the rise and fall of the ruling power, and consequently death through the psychology of Shakespearean historical personalities who, in their essence and flow of thought, are still present and recognizable to this day. The eternal battle for power and authority is a battle on various levels of consciousness, revealing human passions and weaknesses, and an unstoppable instinct for destruction and auto-destruction. The play is a vivisection of psychology of great personalities. They rule, they possess unlimited power, but they also have names and surnames, eyes and mouths and hands. Sitting around the same table they struggle ruthlessly and relentlessly. Richard III will do anything to attain the power and Richard II will do anything to sustain it. After the rise comes the fall, after the fall comes death. There only is one course; they all go to Jerusalem.
