Kiss of the Earth

A Fusion of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet and Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring

Wed 4 Feb 2015 to Sat 7 Feb 2015

Kiss of the Earth

 

Shakespeare's legacy. Stravinsky's masterpiece. 
Romeo and Juliet like you have never
seen before.
 
Concert Theatre  presents a breathtaking fusion of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet and Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring. With a cast of five Lecoq-trained actors and classical pianists from Royal Academy of Music, the two classic tales collide with stirring music and mesmerising physical theatre.
 
The audience embark on a journey of wordless storytelling expertly animated through commedia half masks. The heart-felt melodies of The Rite of Spring sets Shakespeare’s starcrossed lovers against the pounding,barbaric rhythms of the deadly feud between Montagues and Capulets. Every movement, every dissonance, and every silence heightens the tragic fate of the young lovers.
