About This Clip

Kral “Soyatrım” Lear (“My Fool” King Lear)

Yiğit Serdemir’s Kral “Soyatrım” Lear (“My Fool” King Lear) is an adaptation of Shakespeare’s King Lear. Jointly produced by Pangar and Altıdan Sonra theatre companies in 2014, it tells the story of King Lear from the point-of-view of Lear’s fool who meets other fools who become both audiences and performers of this storytelling. Tomris İncer, Berkay Ateş, Demet Evgar, Okan Yalabık, Sezin Akbaşoğulları, Umut Kurt and Yiğit Sertdemir perform multiple roles in this dream-like and grotesque adaptation that foregrounds human follies through the caricature-like depiction of the several fools in the play. Live music accompanies the bells of the motley-clad fools who try to make sense of the obvious follies committed by the titular character of Shakespeare’s play. The use of puppets between puppet and puppeteer along with the juxtaposition of the fool and the king show how social demarcations are actually void and non-existent.
