Hamlet-Mobile is an immersive, site-specific adaptation of Shakespeare's Hamlet staged in a cargo van. It consists of 8 different short pieces performed for audiences of 1 to 4 people. On a given night, the Hamlet-Mobile parks in a predetermined location then perform one of the eight pieces on a loop for a three hour block. 

Hamlet-Mobile's 2016 iteration ran from October 14 through November 19 at various location around Los Angeles, including the IndieCade Festival of Independent Gaming where it won the "Game Design" Award. Hamlet-Mobile premiered at the 2015 Hollywood Fringe Festival where it was nominated for "Best of Dance and Physical Theater."
