DYNAMO THÉÂTRE | ET SI ROMÉO ET JULIETTE
National Arts Centre
1, rue Elgin, Ottawa, (Québec), K1P 5W1
Falling in love: so love is a fall? Sometimes. And it can be fatal! Think of Romeo and Juliet: two warring families pitted against two determined teenagers with loving hearts. DynamO Théâtre shakes up the classic tale, incorporating acrobatics, swordfights, juggling, and a rotating set. Four actors play all the parts and comment on the action; Shakespeare himself is invited to speak. Can the inevitable be avoided? All we know is that if we’re going to reinvent the story, we have to find a way to overcome the power of hate. DynamO Théâtre Production Concerpt and direction by Jackie Gosselin Ages 8 to 14. Performance is approximately 55 minutes with no intermission.
