ROMEO & JULIET

THESE VIOLENT DELIGHTS HAVE VIOLENT ENDS

Shakespeare’s classic tale of love at first sight has been the subject of countless retellings throughout the years. shake & stir’s extremely popular 50-minute adaptation intertwines Shakespeare’s text with contemporary music, video and photography, showing the ease at which his classic words and characters resonate with young people of any era  – especially 2017. Against their parents’ will, these young romantics steal private moments and plan their future together in complete ignorance of an increasingly oppressive backdrop of hatred, prejudice and narrow mindedness.
