Juliet and Romeo
With Lost Dog’s blend of dance, theatre, and comedy this duet reveals the real story of Romeo and Juliet. It turns out they didn’t die in a tragic misunderstanding, they grew up and lived happily ever after. Well, they lived at least.
Now they’re 40ish, at least one of them is in the grips of a mid-life crisis, they feel constantly mocked by their teenage selves and haunted by the pressures of being the poster couple for romantic love. They have decided to confront their current struggles by putting on a performance – about themselves. Their therapist told them it was a terrible idea.
This duet takes on our cultural obsession with youth and our inevitable issues with longevity.
Solène won Outstanding Female Modern Performance at the 2018 National Dance Awards for her role as Juliet.
Home for Broken Turns
The Home for Broken Turns is the kind of place that makes you dream of running away to the circus. But it is also a sanctuary, a place where the few remaining occupants could be described as family. This is the story of a group of women who exist on the outskirts, fiercely protective of each other and ready to savage anything that threatens to break up their dwindling pack.
