Love, civil strife, fighting on the streets, isolation, and a plague. Sound familiar? That’s right, it’s Romeo and Juliet. A modern take on the classic tale of star-crossed lovers told through a fusion of video, Shakespeare’s text, masks, music, and animation. A creative collaboration with actors, a costume designer, Character and Experimental animators, and music producers.

The Tryptic:
Experience 1: Explore the social media of each character and interact by chatting and commenting on their posts in real time.
Experience 2: A viewing of The Romeo and Juliet Experience
Experience 3: Come and celebrate with Music, Visuals, and Mingling at the “Capulet’s Ball” hosted in the stunning virtual world of URNOWHERE.
