Instead of Shakespeare's fair Verona, we will be transported to Lurhmann's vibrant Verona Beach, with its blazing sun and feuding gangs. Love erupts with intensity while violence bubbles in the streets as the contemporary lens casts an emphasis on the youthful volatility at the heart of Shakespeare's text.
Shifting from comedy to tragedy via balls, brawls, chapels and crypts, Romeo and Juliet offers a multi-faceted adventure. It is up to audience members to negotiate between the Montagues and Capulets, to search for salvation amidst the civil blood and ancient grudges.
After the blockbuster impact of previous projects, including Shawshank Redemption, Moulin Rouge and Blade Runner, Secret Cinema have pioneered a new fusion of immersive performance and film. Productions are typically bombastic and evocative, so we look forward to seeing how their most ambitious project so far plays out.
Fabien Riggall, Founder & Chief Creative Officer says: 'We are excited to take Secret Cinema into the fields reimagining the festival format by creating large scale magical immersive worlds across an entire outdoor location, where the audience live inside the most loved films of all time.'
