in one of the productions mentioned, hamlet was portrayed as a strong man being "six foot three and broad" this is interesting as in that production hamlet must have been seen as a physically dominant man, and this doesn't necessarily reflect his thinking and renaissance man nature./

It was quite enlightening to be endowed with such personal insight and perspective of somebody's ideas and thoughts as to why their own performances, interpretations and contextual understandings allowed them to portray the play in such unique means, and through the analysis of historical interpretations, to gain a more rounded and informed opinion to gain insight into the way Hamlet should be portrayed to appeal to and symbolise a real humanity; an extensive, and modern audience.

That's true, that is good question. dilemma--> what is more important, to portray a Hamlet to the audience that is relatable to their age, or focus more on portraying a Hamlet that sticks to the original context and text?
