Romeo ❤️ Juliet
Iceland Dance Company take on Shakespeare's classic.
A work by Erna Ómarsdóttir og Halla Ólafsdóttir, music by Sergei Prokofiev.
Iceland Dance Company brings to the stage Romeo ❤️ Juliet, the renowned dance work by Erna Ómarsdóttir and Halla Ólafsdóttir in collaboration with dancers from Iceland Dance Company.
ROMEO ❤️ JULIET was originally created in collaboration with the dancers of Ballet des Staatstheater am Gärtnerplatz, München, and premiered in the fall of 2018. The work will be developed, adapted and re-created with the dancers of Iceland Dance Company. Using Shakespeare’s play as a starting point, Romeo ❤️ Juliet by Erna Ómarsdóttir and Halla Ólafsdóttir merges contemporary dance, visual art and Prokofiev´s music. The performance deconstructs the original story into a web of simultaneous narratives, merging references from popular culture with the language of ballet. The outcome is a nightmarish monster; an abstract world full of blood, love, ballet exorcism, fire, dance and death.
Romeo ❤️ Juliet glides across the sands of consciousness. Like a bloody river, winding its way to sea.
