BALLO - Romeo and Juliet -

  • Organization : CHAiroiPLIN
  • Section : Artistic and creative activity in Tokyo
  • Type of Grant Program : Single
  • Art Forms : Dance


CHAiroiPLIN staged a new work on the theme of “Romeo and Juliet” for the fourth performance in its “dance theater series.”
With a story unquestionably strong for both theater and dance, the aim was not to deconstruct and contemporise; instead the troupe retained classic elements in terms of both text and physicality, aiming for an expression of beautiful words and bodies featuring CHAiroiPLIN’s unique “literature meets the body” interpretation, songs, musical performance, dialogue, dance, onomatopoeia, contact improvisation, etc. In addition, by strengthening the quality of dance by individual performers, the troupe set itself the challenge of a production based on choreography focusing on the existence of each character within the romantic tragedy, starting with the Romeo and Juliet duo performances.
