Clube Estefânia
R. Alexandre Braga, n. 24 A, Lisboa

A non-integral adaptation of Shakespeare’s classic which, with an entirely female cast, intends to simultaneously cancel the gender issue and question the woman’s role in art whilst muse and creator. The action, that takes place in an uncertain physical and temporal space, will highlight Romeo and Juliette’s lives predetermined nature, as well as the similarities between the rival families. How is the conflict born between hope and family heritage and personal ambition and convictions? Does love imply choice or is it an emotion completely devoid of reason? In a delicate limbo between life and death, the idea of loss deepens until it submerges and suffocates with all the other emotions.
