A Reimagining
By William Shakespeare
Adapted by Charlotte De Wit and Pip Thoroughgood

In the heart of modernity, where technology and fast-paced living often overshadow the profound, there emerges a bold and explorative reimagining of Shakespeare's timeless classic, Romeo and Juliet. This contemporary adaptation seeks to bridge the gap between centuries, weaving the enduring beauty of Shakespearean prose with the visceral power of movement, dance, and physical theatre. The core question that this production dares to pose is one of profound significance: what stories can our bodies tell, and how can they, in turn, move audiences to rediscover the excitement of classic tales.

In this reimagined work, audiences are invited to witness the fusion of past and present, as the hauntingly poetic words of Shakespeare take on new life through the language of movement.
It is an immersive experience that transports history into the current day, effectively breaking down the barriers of time and allowing the universal themes of love, conflict, and tragedy to resonate with contemporary sensibilities. Through this creative alchemy, the production seeks to connect with young people, drawing them into a world where the passion and intensity of "Romeo and Juliet" feel as relevant as ever. As the actors bring the story to life through their bodies, this adaptation promises to ignite a renewed sense of wonder and engagement with classic theatre, proving that the timeless can still captivate and inspire the modern soul.
