The Romeo

May 18 @ 8:00 pm - 9:15 pm

Picture a dance. Let’s call it the “Romeo”, after Shakespeare’s young lover who, in ignited enthusiasm, believed he could conquer death. Picture this dance, which would be known all over the world, although no one would know when and where it was created. A large-scale piece for a dozen performers, Trajal Harrell forges a speculative style of dancing inspired by the primal impulse behind the desire to dance, and to transcend the here and now. It is a dance which lends its characteristics to a multitude of protagonists. As court dance, voguing pose, or pastoral dance, the Romeo has already lived a thousand lives. No matter where the Romeo might have originated: imagine this dance that people of all origins, genders, and generations, of all temperaments and moods, dance when they face their tragedies and only dance. Trajal Harrell will now bring it to Singapore. And maybe that’s where the story really begins.
