Radio and Juliet

radio and juliet

A scene from Radio and Juliet

Next week's schedule at Jacob's Pillow includes a ballet featuring the music of Radiohead. We're not sure if Radio and Juliet looks different and interesting... or just a little odd and head-scratch-inducing.

Here's the blurb from the JP site:

Transport into a universe of razor-sharp dancing, video effects, electronic rhythms and beautiful melodies with a new take on Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, set to the music of Radiohead, today's most influential alternative rock band. In a rare U.S. engagement, this powerfully gorgeous contemporary ballet by Romanian choreographer Edward Clug, a fast-rising star and artistic director of Ballet Maribor, casts superb ballet dancers that give new life to this timeless tale of conflict, fate and love.

Here's a "trailer" for the performance.

There are performances July 1-5. Tickets are $59.50. But get this: if you're under the age of 35, you can score tickets for $35.

Thanks guys, I love Radiohead and I don't feel old at all right now. WTH, I'm not going to start making fake IDs at 37!

Certainly an odd age to choose, but the show sounds like a really cool idea.. ok, so I'm a sucker for both of them. A few Radiohead songs were used for the Kate and Leo version of the R&J movie anyway.

I can imagine hearing 'Thinking of you' as Romeo is outside Juliet's window after they first meet. I think anything from 'Ok Computer' would be awesome preformed as a ballet.

A lot of theatres and performance spaces offer discounts for people under 30 or 35. It's worth a check whenever you call a place.

As for this, I'm willing to twist some arms to go.

You can probably get away with using one of mine; after all, we do share a mom.

"We're not sure if Radio and Juliet looks different and interesting... or just a little odd and head-scratch-inducing."

I got the promo in the mail today and had exactly the same reaction. kinda cool, kinda WTF.

Did you hold onto your student IDs after college?

I ride every day to work, and also after work for exercise. I love the concept of being a person who happens to ride a bike. There's a level of bike riding, with the high performance gear and sleek clothing, that makes riding seem like its not for everyone. I try to avoid markers like that, and always wear regular clothing/shoes/backpack with dumpy-looking bike. One concession is bike gloves.
