THRILLING AND MOVING
Rosie Kay Dance Company creates brave new dance in Birmingham that tours to audiences at home and abroad.
We thrill and move a diverse public with relevant, important, political and meaningful dance responding to contemporary society from a female perspective.
EXPLORE ROMEO + JULIET
Romeo + Juliet premiered on 8 September 2021 at Birmingham Hippodrome.
Rosie Kay’s Romeo + Juliet sets the action in the hot Birmingham summer of 2021. In this diverse city, young people’s family loyalties give way to gang allegiance as teenagers play with adult rules. A party in the park gets out of control sparking rumours, rioting and revenge. In the midst of rivalries, first tastes of freedom and sparks of a full-on first love ignite. Two young lovers are led to their tragic deaths by events they can’t control.
ROMEO + JULIET
Our exclusive Costume Collection is a limited edition replica collection of costumes featured in Rosie Kay Dance Company’s Romeo + Juliet.
GIVE IN STYLE: All proceeds of these sales support the rehearsal and production period of the show, specifically going towards the extra costs incurred in returning to live performance safely.
Making a Romeo + Juliet in present day Birmingham
Join Rosie Kay and Artistic Advisors to the project in a discussion chaired by Birmingham Hippodrome’s Artistic Director/CEO Fiona Allan. Artistic Advisors include actor and director Dylan Duffus, headteacher Azita Zohhadi, Dance Artist Shanelle Clemenson and fellow Hippodrome Associates and choreographers Aakash Odedra and Sonia Sabri.
