June 2 @ 20:00 - June 3 @ 20:00 CEST
In English. The HandleBards have done what they do best. They have created a wacky and hilarious version of Romeo and Juliet, the most famous love story in the world. With both their charming and irreverently chaotic style, this bicycle-powered troupe guarantees a distinctive evening full of wit and verve. Photo © Shakespeare Festival / The HandleBards.
The annual Shakespeare Festival has taken place in Neuss for thirty years. Local expats adore performances in English at the traditional Globe Theatre, a replica of the original along the Thames in London.
As well as the festival’s innovative approach, new artistic director Maja Delinić is developing deeper, multifaceted and cross-disciplinary encounters with William Shakespeare and his works. For four weeks, 14 different companies from various countries will perform in 35 events at the Globe Theater Neuss. New faces making their debut in Neuss as well as well-known and favourite theatre troupes unite drama, music, art, lecture and audience improvisation.
