Radio and Juliet is an hour long ballet created in 2005 for the Slovenian company Ballet Maribor in Slovenia. It was directed by Romanian dancer and choreographer Edward Clug. The ballet is a rendition of William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet set to the music of Radiohead. Noted for the ballet’s choreography and simplicity, Radio and Juliet represents a modernized interpretation of Shakespeare. As stated by Edward Clug, “You could call this quite a twisted version… My intention was not to retell the story but offer the audience an experience from a different perspective.”
