In this original dance piece inspired by the classic tale of the star-crossed lovers, Kimberley Cooper has created a new world for these themes of love and violence to wrestle and play.

Adapted by Cory Bowles with original live music by Nick Fraser, this work breathes new life into one of Shakespeare’s best-known and loved works.

Says Kimberley Cooper, DJD artistic director, “It is still recognizable, but not in the traditional way. I find this story to be so seductive, and because it is so well-known, that gave us permission to dive into and invent different ideas.  My hope is that the audience will find delight in the twists and turns we took in the re-imagining of this passionate and tragic tale.”

What are Relaxed Performances?

 

Sometimes referred to as sensory-friendly experiences, Relaxed Performances give the opportunity for those with various sensitivities towards sensory stimuli to experience and enjoy live theatre.

These performances will be designed in a way to be more comfortable for audience members who may experience anxiety or are not comfortable with some aspects of a traditional theatre setting. This can include people on the Autism Spectrum and their families; those with sensory and communicative disorders or learning disabilities; people with Tourette’s syndrome; someone who might need to move often due to chronic pain or to use the facilities; or even parents with toddlers.

 

Relaxed Performances offered during the 2021 Charlottetown Festival:
