Shakespeare with a difference

From Monday 6th until Wednesday 8th October, the New Wolsey Theatre welcomes Shakespeare’s Romeo And Juliet from Custom/Practice with a difference.

wolsey_WillShakeFollowing Custom/Practice’s exceptionally successful tour of A Midsummer Night’s Dream in 2013, Shakespeare’s greatest tragedy Romeo And Juliet is set to come alive on the new UK tour, as the story is magically retold by one of the UK’s most highly regarded, up-and-coming, young theatre companies.

In this brand new production, Custom/Practice interweaves Shakespeare’s original language with dynamic street dance, aimed at diverse theatre audiences. Their approach aims to bring the best of classical theatre to new audiences, while continuing to challenge more traditional audiences by renewing their imaginative engage-ment with a well-known classical text.

By developing a production that seam-lessly integrates the best of spoken classical verse with the best contemporary street dance, the work will challenge audiences and artists from both worlds in order to engage with the text and its narrative in new ways. Both dance and spoken elements will be underscored with newly commissioned music.
