Erna Ómarsdóttir (Reykjavík) / Halla Ólafsdóttir (Stockholm) / Artists in Residence

“The Juliet Duet” is a dance performance inspired by a previous cooperation of the two Icelandic choreographers Erna Ómarsdóttir and Halla Ólafsdóttir for the ballet “Romeo und Julia” at Munich’s Gärtnerplatztheater.

In “The Juliet Duet”, they now focus entirely on the character of Julia. The choreographers themselves are dancing, and instead of the large-scale production, they focus on an immediate encounter with the audience.

Director: Nuran David Calis

A long time ago, Güllen was a wealthy city. Now it is looking into the abyss of financial ruin. Sell-out and seizure are threatening. In this fatal situation, the residents are have nothing to hope for – except for the visit of an old lady, multi-millionaire Claire Zachanassian. Perhaps she can revive the ruined city of Güllen with an endowment?
