The performance contains licentious language and scenes of nudity.
"Romeo and Juliet" is a "feeling", it's the knot in your stomach that signals you've fallen in love, it's the state of weightlessness when "you have to touch your head to make sure it's still there".
The TNRS performance is a journey into the boundless space of love: with no logic or morality, without lamentation and contempt, without boredom, without commentary. Here attraction is the first law of physics. And the force with which the young people accelerate towards each other feels like that of their fall into the abyss. Because where desire arises, so does envy, where light falls, shadows lurk around it. A black wing, a scream, in the middle of a dance floor.
Andriy Zholdak, the author of the performance, took a "classic" and remixed it. The well-known Ukrainian director (re)imagines in the style of a cinematic, non-linear montage, the story of the two star-crossed lovers, by applying a surrealist filter and allowing Shakepseare’s poetic language to shine.
“Romeo and Juliet” is a meteor shower, embodied by the theater’s young team of actors and by the students of the acting department, it is the reference of a way of being, youthfully, beautifully and lively.
