In Romeo and Juliet, it takes the death of two young children for the adults to acknowledge the blind hatred that drives them. It’s sobering to realize that today, children everywhere on the planet are still the victims of our quarrels and wars. Jacqueline Gosselin
Falling in love: so love is a fall? Sometimes. And it can be fatal! Think of Romeo and Juliet: two warring families pitted against two determined teenagers with loving hearts.
DynamO Théâtre shakes up the classic tale, incorporating acrobatics, swordfights, juggling, and a rotating set. Four actors play all the parts and comment on the action; Shakespeare himself is invited to speak. Can the inevitable be avoided? All we know is that if we’re going to reinvent the story, we have to find a way to overcome the power of hate.
