Star-Crossed Lovers Crossover

There have been so many interpretations and versions of Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet”, yet artists continue to find new ways to engage with this timeless tale of tragic love. The latest offering, called “A Tale of Star-Crossed Lovers”, is a collaboration between the KL Shakespeare Players and butoh dance group Nyoba Kan, where butoh is used to break down and reinterpret the story of “Romeo and Juliet”. To brings things even closer to home, the performance will also be interwoven with the Javanese dance of Rama and Shinta. We speak to the show’s director, butoh master Lee Swee Keong, and performers Hana Nadira and Zul Zamir, about this unique new interpretation.
