What if Romeo & Juliet…
Prodigious birth of love it is to me, that I must love a loathed enemy.
What if Romeo & Juliet… delves into the Shakespearean world and revisits the strikingly magnificent story of a great pain brought on by the hate between 2 families.
With the passage of time, reinterpreting the timeless masterpiece through Theatre of acrobatic movement. The poetry of the bodies, the beauty of the bard’s words, the magic of the soundscape and appealing lighting all contribute as love, hate, revenge, tragedy and romance come to blend.
Could there be another ending to this famed story? What if someone decided to lay down one’s weapons?
