ABOUT THE PRODUCTION

"Can you tell me the story of Romeo and Juliet?” The result of a series of phone calls to people who were asked to tell, in their own words, the story of Romeo and Juliet from beginning to end, this one-of-a-kind performance by the off-off-Broadway company Nature Theater of Oklahoma takes some rather surprising twists and turns, due to the fact that no one they speak to seems to exactly remember the plot. Who loved whom first? Did they have sex? Who killed Mercutio?
Versions of the story compound in an array of competing scenarios as the participants try to invent themselves out of their own narrative blind alleys. In the end, the participants radically re-imagine Romeo and Juliet in their own voluptuous detail, creating scenes and characters that never existed before. What we are left with is a highly personal and original series of Romeos, pervaded with feeling and rife with thoughts about love.

Coproduction with the International Summer Festival auf kampnagel, Hamburg
