For its premiere offering, DUP presents “#R</3J,” a multimedia hallucination on William Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet.”
Romeo and Juliet is set in the city of Verona, a restless milieu of politics and glamour ruled by the
Montagues and the Capulets - two perpetually clashing families showing no signs of submission.
These conditions pave the way for one of the most enduring tragedies in all of literature. A Montague
fights for a chance to love a Capulet. Everybody knows what happens next. We blame the system
and the oppressive circumstances that result from it. We blame two lovers who only felt that they had no other choice. But what if the story happened today?
