Natalie Weir’s ‘Romeo & Juliet’ (Act 1) and ‘CARMEN SWEET’ EXPRESSIONS DANCE COMPANY
Natalie Weir’s Romeo & Juliet Love plays a major role in all our lives, but as Shakespeare knew too well, does not always guarantee a fairy tale ending. Expressions Dance Company turns the classic story of Romeo and Juliet on its head, cutting to the essence of what is real, human and inevitable.
With music composed by John Babbage and recorded by prolific music ensemble Topology, R&J celebrates contemporary performance at its most bold and powerful.
Natalie Weir’s CARMEN SWEET This iconic tale of passion unfolds when naïve soldier Don Josè falls under the alluring spell of fiery gypsy Carmen, abandoning his childhood sweetheart and deserting the army. Josè’s attempts to tame the freedom-loving beauty are futile, and when she leaves him for the famous toreador Escamillo, the scene is set for jealousy and revenge.
Opera’s most famous femme fatale is stripped bare in Natalie Weir’s sumptuous new dance interpretation of the legendary Carmen story, performed to Shchedrin’s gripping Carmen Suite by six EDC dancers. Weir’s Carmen is a free spirit; dangerous, volatile and vulnerable, brought to vivid life by three dancers playing her different states of mind and alter egos.
