The Juliet Duet
Erna Ómarsdóttir (Reykjavík) / Halla Ólafsdóttir (Stockholm) / Artists in Residence
The islandic choreographers create a version of the ballet “Romeo and Juliet” by using Prokofievs score as the starting point for a duet which focusses entirely on the figure of Juliet. They aim for a dance concert in which the voice is an invisible body in the room, sound and music are considered as an extension of the body. “The Juliet Duet” aims for an
exorcism on the repressive body conventions of classical ballet.
