Cursed hearts


This dynamic new production is inspired by the Romeo and Juliet of Shakespeare, Gounod, and Prokofiev and opens at atyp’s Studio 1 on 28 July 2011.

This innovative interpretation of Romeo and Juliet fuses the classic techniques of opera, ballet and Shakespearian theatre with electronic music, contemporary dance and bite-sized text.

This is an installation. The seating banks are gone and destruction surrounds you as you are guided on an emotional journey told through the melodies, harmonies and dissonance of the chorus of 16 performers.
