ROMEO AND JULIET


About The Event

Event Organiser - THEATRE LABORATORY - ALMA ALTER

ROMEO AND JULIET - The National Theatre in Nairobi and Theatre-laboratory ¨Alma Alter¨ present the musical-dance performance ¨Romeo and Juliet¨ by William Shakespeare. „Romeo and Juliet or a Sonnet for the Eternal Love” is one of the performances of The International Theatre Program “Shakespeare - Contemporary and Cruel”. The program includes the productions “Richard, Richard Who”, “Time for Lear”, Hamlet or Three Boys and One Girl”, “I, Lady Macbeth”, and “Hamlet versus Don Quixote”. All of them are based on the original music of Konstantin Kutshev, which was composed especially for this project, and the unique choreography of Petya Yosifova. How to say “I love you” with no words? - We asked ourselves. We have found the answer in the music that says more than words can ever say. In 1999 at the International Festival for Experimental Theatre in Cairo, we got an award for inventing a “New Theatre Language” - the language of love which we - the human beings, speak from the bottom of our souls. “Dance first. Think later. It’s a natural order”, said Samuel Beckett. “Sing first. Dance later”, we added. We started from here: The melody appeared - the body reacted. The word appeared - the thought reacted. One eternal pure love story makes the people come in the theatre to experience it again and again, but this time in an unusual way. Some of them sing the songs by heart. My “yes”. My “no”. My “maybe”. You are the quietest of my tears. The performance is supported by Student council of Sofia university and Cultural routes fondation.
