Ballet Maribor's Radio and Juliet at Jacob's Pillow
July 1 - July 5, 2009
Radio and Juliet is an abstract take on Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, choreographed by Romanian dancer Edward Clug and performed by Slovenia’s Ballet Maribor to the music of Radiohead, three-time Grammy winner and fourteen-time nominee. Video effects set the stage for references to classic scenes and combine effortlessly with Clug’s sharp, clear, and highly kinetic movement style. Radio and Juliet has only been performed once in the U.S., in October 2008.
