Kammer 2

JULIET & ROMEO

Choreography: Trajal Harrell

Director: 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!

On January 13 Trajal Harrell will be attending the subsequent talk with the audience.
