Ballet never looked so cool:
“Transport into another universe of razor-sharp dancing, video effects, electronic rhythms, and beautiful melodies with Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, set to the music of Radiohead. In a rare U.S. engagement at Jacob’s Pillow Dance, this powerfully gorgeous contemporary ballet by Edward Clug, a fast-rising star and artistic director of Slovenia’s Ballet Maribor, casts superb ballet dancers to give new life to this timeless tale of conflict, fate, and love. Clug utilizes the rhythmic power of Radiohead’s dynamic compositions to propel his dancers into new emotional heights.”
The Radio and Juliet score includes “Bullet Proof I Wish I Was,” “Fitter Happier,” “How to Disappear,” and “Idioteque,” among others.
