Natallie Weir's R & J - Burnie
R&J is love interrupted, love you can't live without and love you have to. This is Romeo and Juliet for our times.
An Expressions Dance Company & Queensland Performing Arts Centre Production
Love plays a major role in all our lives, but as Shakespeare knew too well, does not always guarantee a fairy-tale ending.
Set across three different eras, and telling three different versions of events, R&J turns the classic story of Romeo and Juliet on its head, cutting to the essence of what is real, human and inevitable.
R&J reinforces the notion that love – no matter what age you are, or what era you live in – is eternal, and its power, everlasting.
With music composed by John Babbage and recorded by prolific music ensemble Topology, R&J celebrates contemporary performance at its most bold and powerful.
