Romeo and Juliet - the Final Hours

Watch the greatest love story of all time – the intrigues and conflicts of the families of the two young lovers in their final hours, before surrendering to their inevitable destiny.

Similarly to our previous productions, athletic physicality is the common thread – a highly physical language to express emotions and to explore the most intimate feelings and complex aspects of human soul. Through the universality of dance and theatre, we aim to examine if age-old sentiments evolve in time. With the help of flashbacks the audience will relive the highlights of the story, in an accelerated film in which the images merge and become confused until they suddenly reveal themselves in pin-sharp clarity.

An elderly man and an elderly woman, as well as a boy and a girl, all chosen from your Timisoara community, take part in the show as the older and younger version of Romeo and Juliet, symbolising the evolution of love, while sending the message that true love can happen at any age.
