A HOT TICKET presentation

Two households…
This is dance, this is theatre, this is a jazz concert.
This is Shakespeare’s tale of love and violence
re-imagined, re-visited, re-loved
hyper-realized, sampled, questioned
recognizable but twisted,
current and classic,
gritty and glorious.
Passion, pheromones, pick-up lines,
I want you
I need you
I love you
These violent delights have violent ends.

In this striking original dance piece, inspired by the classic tale of the star-crossed lovers, Artistic Director 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 with twists and turns sure to delight audiences in the re-imagining of this passionate and tragic tale.

“From the moment the curtains open, Juliet and Romeo compels the audience with wit and intensity, its choreographic élan, smooth live jazz and talented dance ensemble. Cory Bowles (Trailer Park Boys) is a charismatic narrator…His story is quirky, at times quite brilliant, sometimes wacky, always compelling.” – Anne Georg, Calgary Herald
