Description

 

Requiem for Juliet


O me! this sight of death is as a bell,
That warns my old age to a sepulchre.
(Lady Capulet) 

Requiem for Juliet is Riccardo Buscarini’s take on William Shakespeare’s 1597 play, Romeo and Juliet. Commissioned for ┼╗finMalta, Requiem for Juliet stands as a sequel to the story narrated in Shakespeare’s most famous tragedy. In this work, the narrative is relived as an imaginary letter to the deceased Juliet from her bereaved mother, who is represented by an actress on stage throughout. Love and grief, gender roles, religion, and power, are central themes in the play and in this adaptation. Buscarini’s choreography is intertwined with voice-over text written for this work and inspired by the original play.

 

Supported by the Italian Cultural Institute of Valletta.
