What if Romeo & Juliet… delves into the Shakespearean world and revisits the classic tale of the great pain brought on by the hate between two families. In DynamO’s version, this timeless masterpiece is reinterpreted through acrobatic movement. Could there be another ending to this famed story? What if someone decided to lay down one’s weapons?
