Romeu e Julieta - Gabriel Villela - Romeo and Juliet - The Globe Theatre - 2000 - 4K

Shakespeare em Português - Romeu e Julieta - Gabriel Villela - Romeo and Juliet - The Globe Theatre - 2000 - 4K

Espetáculo concebido e dirigido por Gabriel Villela, com dramaturgia e textos adicionais de Cacá Brandão, sobre o original de William Shakespeare. O espetáculo teve grande repercussão com a temporada no Globe Theatre, em Londres, em 2000.



Romeo & Juliet: at the Globe Theatre
Grupo Galpão’s Romeu e Julieta (1992), directed by Gabriel Villela, is an intercultural adaptation of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, a production that intentionally draws on a range of popular practices such as street theatre, circus performance and the tradition of the commedia dell’arte, as well as on elements from the cultural imaginary of Minas Gerais in southeast Brazil. The group has done extensive reworking of Onestaldo de Pennafort’s Portuguese translation, cutting a lot of text and transmuting extensive passages into songs and rhythms of the Brazilian backlands. They cunningly mix comedy and tragedy, remediate Elizabethan stage convention and recreate formal and stylistic aspects of Shakespeare’s play. Besides blending Shakespeare’s verse with the syntax of Guimarães Rosa, constantly negotiating between the global and the local, the company appropriated Peter Brook’s conception of Romeo and Juliet as the tragedy of precipitation, which provided them with the idea of acting on stilts to enhance the necessary bodily vertigo for speech and action. The dramatic design and fusion of its hybrid interlocking elements can be pointed out as strategies that contribute to revitalize Shakespeare’s dramaturgy.

Like Shakespeare, who also used recognizable popular songs of his own day, the use popular Brazilian regional songs from Minas Gerais and other regions exerted several important functions, such as marking the beginning and end of some scenes, enhancing the festive atmosphere and reinforcing the intercultural dialogue. In spite of the multiple incarnations of the production in different performance spaces, it is possible to speak of a conceptual unity of the play. By the time it reached the Globe in London, in 2000, the main elements remained constant, while others were introduced when particular circumstances required them. The Globe staging stunningly achieved the same festive effect reached in street theatre.

Interviews - James Reynard - Role: Timon of Athens - MISANTHROPOS

James Reynard
Role: Timon

Do you recall what your first ever Shakespeare role was and can you tell us your thoughts on your first performance?

Hmm... have to cast the mind back for this one! I recall a workshop on “Macbeth” at school, but I think my first professional performance was as Mercutio in “Romeo and Juliet”. I remember doing what I thought might work, but without much actual knowledge about acting! I think it was very exterior – someone in the cast said “Like a Christmas Tree, lots on the outside, but not much inside!” Anyway, I guess there was something inside as I got some very nice critiques and I learned a lot from the production (I played the same character twice more during subsequent years).

You have been incredibly prolific with Shakespeare in your career, more so than any other cast member. What draws you to Shakespeare again and again?

The Bard is modern and alive than ever in Robert Wilson's Shakespeare's Sonnets, a contemporary take on 25 specially chosen sonnets from Shakespeare's cannon. Set to a sweeping score composed by Rufus Wainwright, a genre-bending mix of medieval German Minnesang, classical, pop, and cabaret rock is performed by the actors of the Berliner Ensemble. The sonnets were pared down and selected by dramaturge Jutta Ferbers who deftly adapted these captivating poems that were originally unintended for the theater.

For this production, Wilson embraces the prevalence of subversive gender conventions embedded in Shakespeare's 154 sonnets which move fluidly between male and female objects of desire. Several quintessential characters make an appearance; from boy to fool, from Cupid to the mysterious Dark Lady, from the Queen of England to Shakespeare himself. Wilson's signature sculpting of time, light, and gesture combined with Wainwright's romantic, sensitive, and at times disturbingly dark score transports audiences to a dreamlike place suspended in time.
