Romeo & Julia
by William Shakespeare
Premiere February 16, 2002 at Elverket.
A unique collaboration between Dramaten and Cirkus Cirkör.
The world's best love story. Told through theater and contemporary circus. With trapeze artists, acrobats, actors, mimers, dancers and jugglers in the roles. Shakespeare's story of young, engrossing love told in a new way. Wild. Beautifull. Breakneck.
"... high-flying theater artistry"
"The result is a Romeo and Juliet that deserves to go down in history, an all-around work of art that will enchant both young and old."
"Filtered through the forms of the New Circus, the play’s words become a living body."
