“Romeo and Juliet. Love is an acrobat” at the Teatro Piccolo in Forlì
Descriptive text here

Already highly applauded in the past season with the show Don Chisciotte, Stivalaccio Teatro returns to the Teatro Piccolo in Forlì! On Thursday 4 April at 9pm, for an evening that has already been sold out, the company will present Romeo and Juliet. Love is acrobat, an original story by director Marco Zoppello who also stars in it with Anna De Franceschi and Michele Mori.

1574. Venice in turmoil. The news circulates through streets and foundations: Henry III of Valois, on his way to Paris to be crowned King of France, will spend a night in the Serenissima. An immense honor for the Doge and for the lagoon city.

Giulio Pasquati and Girolamo Salimbeni, a couple of charlatan acrobats with a stormy past, are commissioned to put on a show in honor of the Prince. Not just any story, but the greatest love story that has ever been written: Romeo and Juliet.

Two hours to prepare to go on stage, rehearse the show and above all: where to find the right “Juliet”, chaste and pure, for Prince Henry to admire? And here appears in the square the busty Veronica Franco, poet and “honored courtesan” of the Republic, willing to try her hand at the unlikely role of the immaculate young girl.

We are therefore witnessing an “open rehearsal”, in the manner of the comedians of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, where the famous story of the Bard takes shape and is deformed in the mixing of plots, dialects, songs, improvisations, sounds, duels and pantomimes.

“Shakespeare becomes, for us, living material in which to immerse our hands, to bring to the stage, through popular theatre, the great passions of man, ‘Otellian’ jealousies, ‘merchant’ prejudices, ‘storms’ and shipwrecks , in a dance between life and death, knives and poisons.”

“The fast-paced rhythm of the jokes, the songs and the continuous references to pop culture also justify the poetic license that sees Romeo and Juliet performed in 1574, when the drama had not yet been composed” (Antonia Liberto – dramaturgia.it).
