Avant Garde Dance’s Romeo & Juliet (2014)

(Writer / Dramaturg / Actor)

Avant Garde’s Romeo and Juliet uses 3D sound design, lyrical theatre and multiple locations across the streets of Blackfriars to create a cinematic journey through Shakespeare’s epic love story. Tony Adigun’s ground-breaking choreography and direction combines with Shakespeare’s text adapted by Maxwell Golden, to create a stunning production that immerses the audience in a modern take of the play that literally uses the cityscape as the stage”

  • - commissioned by Southwark Council (as part of Blackfriars Stories)
  • - supported by The National Theatre’s Watch This Space Festival.
  • - support from Arts Council England Grants for the Arts Programme
