Le Grenat,
Théâtre de l’Archipel, Perpignan

ROMEO AND JULIET
William Shakespeare

Adapted by David Bobee

  

 

Romeo and Juliet, that great romantic myth, a tragic love story against the backdrop of intolerance, eternal damnation. Shakespeare wrote his tragedy drama for the suburbs of Verona, David Bobee creates a Romeo an Juliet in coppery color,  orange lights, urban spaces,  guerrilla territories … with dancers and acrobats expressing confrontations, friendship and struggle. A modern story which paints today, yesterday and probably, alas, tomorrow. A feverish romance that mixes dance, circus and theatre!

Le Théâtre de l’Archipel‬

There is an exciting new addition to the Perpignan skyline. If you have been to Perpignan in the last few months you would have noticed a large construction along Avenue Général Leclerc and a giant concrete bubble. This bubble is ‬now‪ ‘the grenat,’ a large theatre space accommodating 1100 guests and the venue of the Théâtre de l’Archipel. Designed by renowned French architect Jean Nouvel, the theatre will bring a touch of prestige to the previously rundown edge of the city.‬

‪The new theatre and cultural precinct is designed to be an artistic & cultural hub for the city. Welcoming local and international artists, it is hoped the precinct will encourage a spirit of multiculturalism and social tolerance.‬

‪There is something for everyone in the season line-up including theatre, dance, circus, opera, classical & contemporary music, as well as a special programme for children. Some of the artists performing include Eric Cantona, Thomas Dutronc and Yael Naim. Ticket prices range from 11€ to 40€.‬

‪For ticket and performance information you can visit the theatre website: www.theatredelarchipel.org Here you will be able to read more about “the grenat” and take a virtual tour of the site.‬
