Love is in the air as the greatest love story takes to trapezes. Read More >

Romeo IcelandArtbox/Vesturport’s bold adapation of the Bard’s tragic love story returns to London after its barnstorming run at the Young Vic last year.

Inspired by the world of circus performance, this production explores the devotion of the two young lovers using stunning aerial and acrobatic choreography. Passionate and dangerous, this is a high-octane, part-romantic, part clowning, encounter between Shakespeare’s star-cross’d lovers.
