My bounty is as boundless as the sea,
My love as deep; the more I give to thee,
The more I have, for both are infinite.
From the moment they first check each other out at the Capulet’s party, Romeo and Juliet cannot bear to be apart. Their love is immediate, passionate, all consuming. But the ridiculous hate between their warring families surrounds their nascent union with danger. Young love proves no match for the grotesque greed and righteous rancor that defines Romeo and Juliet’s Verona. One of the greatest love stories ever told, Romeo and Juliet remains a breathtaking tale of love in the face of hatred, and our inability to halt tragedy before it spirals out of our control.
A stupidly large cast, poisonous nightmares, more gold and glitter than you can imagine, the Rolling Stones, movement and dance, high heels with lip synching, some sword fighting, and a good old punch. In their contemporary production of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, SFU's School for the Contemporary Arts asks, to what extend do we fall prey to the romantic glorification of love? And, is the absence of love a testament to a love of death?
