ROMEO & JULIETand other catastrophic love affaires – GDANSK

The last performance was played in Gdansk. The exhibition and performance were well put together, and the whole performance and exhibition supported each other to create a complete visual representation of a tragic love story from our time.

The performance project won the World Competition of The European Shakespeare Festival Network 2022. The performance was presented at the Shakespeare festivals in Craiova in Romania, Itaka in Serbia, Helsingør in Denmark, and Gdansk in Poland during the summer 2022. The last performance was played in Gdansk – 03-04/08/22. The exhibition and performance supported each other to create a complete visual representation of a tragic love story from our time.

We participate in the ESFN festival from May to August 2022!
