Romeo and Juliet
2014 (UK + China tour)
Devised and produced by Concert Theatre
Directed by An-Ting Chang and Russell Bender
Set and Costume Design by Mila Sanders
A radical retelling of Shakespeare’s tragedy, integrated with Stravinsky’s music for two pianists – part concert, part play, all drama. The violent and dissonant nature of the music is complimented by the actors’ use of half masks, a moveable piano and stylised physical gestures from both actors and pianists.
“Strikingly innovative” The Telegraph on Concert Theatre
