Miami Light Box/Goldman Warehouse Presents R&J The Tempest Too


Description

 

It may seem like an unlikely marriage — Shakespeare and hip hop, tango, spoken word and graffiti arts, but the cast of R&J [romeoandjuliet] A Danced Drama is bringing to the stage divergent art forms to re-tell a timeless classic, Romeo and Juliet.
The Fort Lauderdale-based Grace Arts Center bills its version of the Shakespearean masterpiece as a highly interactive, avant garde theater experience.

There have been many adaptations of Shakespeare’s classic Romeo & Juliet but Grace Arts FL’s version titled R&J The Tempest Too is distinctly Floridian.

Theatre goers on February 18th, will be treated to two classic plays combined and re-imagined for Florida at the time of Shakespeare. The play R&J The Tempest Too draws from actual history and leaves the audience with a current day message.

R&J The Tempest Too delves into the accounts of pioneers, immigrants and migrants shipwrecked in Florida and their journeys through the state during the time Shakespeare penned his last original work, The Tempest.

“The cast of R&J The Tempest Too are international and local Artists performing Afro-Cuban and American Ballet, plus a Spoken Word Narrator, said Director Clare Vickery of Grace Arts FL. History and current events are interwoven in a fast paced drama suitable for all audiencesIt has a twist inspired by Shakespeare’s earliest and final works and current events,” she added.
