Audiences will delight in the twists and turns in the re-imagining of this passionate and tragic tale.

Two households...

This is dance, this is theatre, this is a jazz concert.  

This is Shakespeare's tale of love and violence

re-imagined, re-visited, re-loved

hyper-realized, sampled, questioned

recognizable but twisted,

current and classic,

gritty and glorious.  

Passion, pheromones, pick-up lines,

I want you

I need you

I love you

These violent delights have violent ends.

Tickets for Juliet and Romeo are available exclusively through the Decidedly Jazz Danceworks box office at decidedlyjazz.com or 403.245.3533.
