It's Not About Love

Making Strange

Romeo and Juliet: two households. A balcony. Baz Luhrmann, Dire Straits, the Junior Cert. Why is this story so ubiquitous? Why do we use it as a shorthand for romance when it’s about two teenagers and — spoiler alert — it doesn’t end well?

Directed by Aoife Spillane-Hinks, all-star Megan Riordan performs an eclectic cabaret extravaganza on the nature of love, presence, consciousness, grace and acting as a vessel. How do forces bigger than ourselves move through us? And how might we harness them rather than be at their mercy?
