Decidedly Jazz takes on Shakespeare with their original production Juliet and Romeo, featuring the lithe DJD company dancers and a four-piece band. In this live music / spoken word / dance piece – inspired by the classic tale of the star-crossed lovers – Artistic Director Kimberley Cooper creates a new world for themes of love and violence to wrestle and play. Adapted by Cory Bowles, with original live music by the Nick Fraser Ensemble, this work breathes new life into one of Shakespeare’s best-known and loved works.

…entrancing, exciting, and best of all, steamily on message…” – Calgary Herald

Bowles is a charismatic narrator…His story is quirky, at times quite brilliant, sometimes wacky, always compelling… Choreographically, the show is masterful. Cooper’s choreography switches up pace and mood to keep us engaged, even enthralled.” – Anne Georg
