Romeo and Juliet in Johannesburg

If you’re in Hamburg in October, South African Choreographer Jessica Nupen’s dance performance Romeo & Juliet / REBELLION & JOHANNESBURG will be on stage. The young South African dancers are re-telling the Shakespearean story, exploring the challenges of their young generation while moving to the beats of Johannesburgs’ lively street culture.

The music is composed by Spoek Mathambo, Soweto-born pioneer of the electronic beats.
