ROMEO & JULIET RE LIFE Same days, same hours, same location!

5 days for the neverseen reenactment.

A unique operation: from Sunday to thusday, followint Shakespearian timing, bodies, actions and text: Romeo and Juliet come back to life … up to death!
RE LIFE, as Real Life Re or Alive.

The idea was born from a need: to marry the story of Romeo and Juliet with the city that it has been so identified and so strongly influenced.

To take up the identity of the city and its architecture that just because, or through, Romeo and Juliet was developed as we know it today by far-sighted city administrators.

The idea was born from a desire to live the hectic succession of events provided by the literary reality, translating it in real time. A surprising encounter between theater and reality, a “big brother” of the theater in which, however, does not ask people to do themselves characters, on the contrary: the characters are there, exist in the imaginary of the world, have a personality that emerges from the meeting with the actors who play them, and the actors will be the instrument of life for themselves.

The idea was born to do that City and History are linked for the first time and for the first time none of them will be the instrument of the other, but both co-stars. In a plot where recognize together.

The idea came to work on an interpretive trail that aims to put doubts rather than certainties, aiming to put the performers in the position of always wondering what is the disruptive element, the inner conflict, the generational conflict who they are living in every single scene, making them aware of the "here and now" but also of the consequences "hanging on the stars."
Creating the conditions for which the path of evolution (or devolution) of the individual characters, allowing the performers to proceed in a situation that does not have the unity of the play, which begins and ends in the "two hours traffic of our scenes," but it differs in many moments short and intense, almost supernova theater.

16 scenes in 5 days
Be there and tell shreds of "our" story: Verona and Theatre. That belongs to us, lovers, enthusiasts, quarrelsome, us kids and us parents, us citizens and institutions, us actors and theater people.
Be in a proposal to marry culture and territory, creating the conditions for a "TOURISM ON STAGE" where the cultural event is the engine for the knowledge of the area.
Being there to declare our presence, our identity.
To recognize and identify.
Two Sundays before August 1st , as it’s tradition, Capulet family organizes the most important party of the city. The servant of the Capulet house is sent out with a long list of invitees, and Mercutio will take advantage to introduce the "enemies" MontagueS: Romeo and Benvolio. Romeo knows Juliet.
The CAPULET’S PARTY is the dramatic situation that will allows the first meeting of the two lovers ... and their love at first sight.
But it is also the party in which "Verona society" encountered himself, in unconventional way and out of the “two households” (Capulets and Montagues) array. The opportunity to celebrate the joy of life and the joy of living in Verona. The occasion for the highest town offices  to touch the appreciation of their work, to "sniff" the current climate, before surrendering himself to the libations and entertainment.
Starting from these concepts in "RE LIFE" the Capulet party becomes the party of the city, the festival of Verona today playing with the story of "Romeo and Juliet" and getting into dance, dress, tells. This is the idea for the event more festive of all the scenes of "RE LIFE": Verona gets to the streets ... and have fun!
For this you will be asked to Carnival Masks of Veronese to be present in full force, so citizens will be invited to present, for the Capulet’s Party, that will be a great dance party, where to take folk music, that of  the European roots, maybe revisited, to let explode the ability of involvement, with dancers whom will be asked to prepare to be a leader and servant of the audience.
