Description In 2004 Zen Zen Zo launched their hugely successful schools' touring production of Romeo & Juliet. This energy packed retelling of Shakespeare's classic began by touring Queensland with QAC for a year, then went on to have seasons in Hong Kong and Sydney, being viewed by 20,000 students in Australia and abroad. Spectacular imagery, extreme emotions, dynamic performances and an urban aesthetic brought Shakespeare to students like never before. Lust, hate, betrayal, school uniforms and mobile phones - 16th century school kids have never felt so REAL!
Secondaey school tour.
