Α Hip-Hop Interpretation of Romeo and Juliet in Athens



romeo & julietThe Athens Concert Hall will host, on May 22 and May 23, a very different version of Shakespeare’s drama Romeo and Juliet.

The dance team Trafic de Styles which consists of seven hip-hop dancers, a circus performer and an actor, choreographed by Sebastien Lefrancois will present the audience with their own interpretation of Shakespearean theater.

The story of the fatal love of two young people in Verona will be retold in a different way by Trafic de Styles, who will be dancing to the music of Laurent Couson.

Their movements, the delicate balance between art and performance, exercise and entertainment, body and soul, make this performance fiery and full of youth.

The hip-hop version of Romeo and Juliet’s story aims to make this classic drama play more relevant to the new generation, in order to show the audience that even though centuries have passed, nothing has really changed.
