Following the Government’s recovery roadmap update on Mon 22 Feb, we are continuing to work with producers to confirm or reschedule productions for the coming months.

Please avoid contacting us during this time; we will be in touch with customers of affected productions as soon as we are able. Thank you once again for your patience, we cannot wait to welcome you back.

Information

In association with Birmingham Hippodrome

Hippodrome Associate Rosie Kay’s Romeo + Juliet is a new interpretation of Shakespeare’s iconic tragedy, re-told through the lens of 21st century gang culture, set in the stiflingly hot Birmingham summer of 2021. A diverse cast of young athletic performers represent the city in a riotous new dance piece which explores knife crime, gang-allegiances and the intricacies of forbidden love across racial boundaries between Black and South Asian communities. Rosie Kay’s Juliet is a strong, intelligent and athletic young Black female whose older brother is a dominant gang leader. The balance is upset when Juliet falls for Romeo, a young South Asian male dedicated to his own gang and their rivalries but at heart an artist and dreamer.

Rosie Kay is renowned for creating meaningful dance with research at its heart that challenges potent issues. In the making since 2015, she presents her Birmingham Romeo + Juliet following seventeen years of living with and working with the city’s communities and five years of research with pupils of Birmingham’s Nelson Mandela School, South Asian choreographers and on the beat with West Midlands Police. Artistic Advisors to the project include actor and director Dylan Duffus, headteacher Azita Zohhadi, and choreographers and fellow Hippodrome Associates Aakash Odedra and Sonia Sabri.

Rehearsals are currently being operated with social distancing in place. In the final few weeks, the cast will form a ‘bubble’ and the performance will take place without social distancing.
