The ageless Shakespearean love story is beautifully translated by choreographer Edward Clug. It is boldly expressed against the epic work of the alternative rock band Radiohead.
Ballet Maribor's Radio and Juliet interprets the delicacy of love with the cold hand of mechanization in the modern world. Radiohead's music coupled with the expressive mix of Ballet Maribor!s signature minimalist forms, intensifies feelings of desperation, alienation and loneliness, creating an atmosphere of aggression, and the accelerating passage of time.
“THIS IS A BEAUTIFULLY CONCEIVED PRODUCTION PERFORMED BY SLEEK AND GORGEOUS DANCERS," - Ella Baff, Jacob!s Pillow Executive Director
“CLUG'S BALLET WAS WHITE HOT IN A WAY THAT SHAKESPEARE COULD NEVER HAVE IMAGINED," - Jane Vranish, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
“RADIO AND JULIET IS A MODERN MASTERPIECE, WITH A DISTINCTIVE PERSPECTIVE EXECUTED WITH COMPLETE COMMAND....CLUG'S WHOLE CONCEPTION IS DECISIVELY STYLISH AND EXECUTED WITH MASTERLY FINESSE," - Mark Kanny, Pittsburgh Tribune Review
Approximately 60 min, no intermission
