In this original live music / spoken word / dance piece, inspired by the classic tale of the star-crossed lovers, Kimberley Cooper has created a new world for these themes of love and violence to wrestle and play. Adapted by Cory Bowles, with original live music by Nick Fraser, this work gives new breath to one of Shakespeare’s best known and loved works.
“It is still recognizable, but not in the traditional way. I find this story to be so seductive, and because it is so well known that gave us permission to dive into and invent different ideas in or about the story. My hope is that the audience will find delight in the twists and turns we took in the re-imagining of this passionate and tragic tale.” – Kimberley Cooper, DJD Artistic Director
