Kammer 2

JULIET & ROMEO

By Trajal Harrell

Dance

In his first work for a German municipal theatre, the American choreographer Trajal Harrell, together with male actors, will appropriate Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet”. How can the tragic moment of death (and deaths) at the end of Shakespeare’s play be extended, expanded and maintained? How can longing be protected from the contempt of the world and from pain? Harrell, a passionate advocate of the complexity of the world, gives back beauty, glamour and nonchalance to contemporary dance. Theatre? Realness!
